In my tool-bag there are three products for which I have questions for this knowing audience: PEC-12: That's easy, that's a notorious film cleaner and that's why I bought it. The question also is easy: I only bought the cleaner (inexperienced shopper). Should I also buy the PEC-PADs or can I use something else? Paper handkerchief? Cotton handkerchief? I understand this can be used without "washing it out", it should be "archival". TETENAL GRAPHIC ARTS FILMCLEANER "Free from FHCH" "Cleaning agent for graphic arts films, Mounting films etc. Antistatic properties". This I certainly bought because I thought I might use it one day. That day never came also because I have no idea how to use it. The thing is not transparent, it's pretty pinky, and it carries no instructions. I probably thought it would have been right to clean the BACK of film from dirt or fingerprints. Could I use it also for the emulsion side? For which kind of dirt? And especially, how do I use it? PEC-PADs, paper handkerchief? This thing is not transparent, and that's scary. Should I wash out the residue with de-mineralised water after it cleaned the film? TETENAL ANTISTATIC SPRAY "Prevents static electricity". "Antistatic spray, surface-active agent [...]" This was a surprise gift by a nice reseller, I paid by wire transfer instead of by PayPal and he inserted this can into the parcel gratis et amore dei. I have no idea how to use it. I know it is supposed to be "sprayed" over "film" but I have doubts: - Do you use it? Do you feel the need to use it? I scan a lot, but I'm afraid of long-term consequences of putting chemical stuff over my film. I would like some antistatic properties but not at the expense of long-term preservation of my masterpieces and less-than-masterpieces. - If yes, do you spray it over a PEC-PAD/Handkerchief and use it over the film, or straight over the film? Both sides? Thanks for any help Fabrizio PS In case you wonder why I bought stuff that I never use and don't know how to use, the reason is that when you buy by mail you buy stuff that you think you might need one day, and you don't want to reorder, you want to optimise shipping expenses, etc.
