How Do I Clean Pec-12 Residue off My Neg?
While printing today I discovered a single strand of hair that was stuck on the emulsion side of one of my 6x7 negs. It would not come off with the hurricane blower I usually use to blow off negs before inserting them into the enlarger. So I took a cotton Q-tip and spritzed some Pec-12 cleaner on it and swabbed the area. The good news is the hair came off, the bad news is I either had too much cleaner or I rubbed too hard and I now have a oval shaped residue on the neg that shows up in the print. What would be the best way (if any) to clean this? This is a frame on a strip of three so I imagine I will have to soak in photo flo and let it dry for a few hours. I don't mind, it is kind of an important neg. Thanks for replies.
