    I normally tone my fibre prints in selenium and then give a final rinse in Agfa Sistan. I recently discovered that I put some prints through the Sistan having not toned them. Will the Sistan wash off to allow me to tone or should I just leave them as they are?

    I think the Sistan will wash out. That's why Agfa's instructions say to dry the print with the Sistan still on it.

    Sounds right I guess. I'll give them a good wash and then tone them.
