I have been told, that I should always use hardener fixers for Kodak B&W products. Problem is, I really like my Ilford Rapidfix, which does not harden, and I don't like the additional cleaning bath required after the hardening fix (mainly because I am lazy...). My question is: what ill effect will I see with a roll of tmax or trix developed in lets say Rodinal, stopped with water and fixed with Ilford Rapidfix, then washed thoroughly with water? Is the hardener really something I should concern myself with too much? I have been sticking to the recommended methods tot he letter, not wanting to ruin my kodak negatives, but if I can safely treat them like all the other film I use, it would be great. Thanks for all your help in advance, Peter.
