    Having finished my darkroom and made provision for the effective washing and drying of FB papers I am increasingly moving in that direction. My first home darkroom had no running water and my print washer was not that efficient and wasted a lot of water. Also the fixer laden water stripped the chome of the waste trap in the bath and damaged the enamel over time. I now have an archival washer and print drying racks so look forward to using more FB papers.

    I don't know the exact life, of 1:1 have never really tracked it, i would recommend using saran wrap as a try cover. be sure the wrap is on the surface of the liquid and up the sides of the tray. Don't have a clue as to why saran wrap vs the other "knock Offs' as i am not a chemist but that is the word for Ctein.

    Been out of town, so that is why the delay in my response.

    Adrian,hope you enjoy using fiber papers the wash is a bit of a hassle, but well worht it (at least for me).
    regards and happy new year to all.
