    I'm just about to mix some Kodak Rapid with hardener for film but lost the instructions. Anybody know the mixing proportions? Looks like about 1:3 on the fix but I'm not sure about the hardener.

    If you don't need the hardener, don't add it. I used it for years without the hardener.

    I've been shooting a lot of Efke lately and although I've never used hardener in the past with more modern films, I'd like to try it with this stuff to see if there is any noticable benefit.
