    If you have accidentally spit on a negative, then picking up a few toys to remove dust will not remove your spit. I would suggest you rinse and dry your negative.

    "Blower. Kinetronics brush. Blower"

    Me too. Most of my prints are spot-free; for the others, spotting is pretty easy with a really good brush [the $5 brush I bought at B&H is useless; the $15 one I got at an art supply store is great].

    We actually MAKE them here at Mobberley we don't 'buy them in' HOW we do not sell a million of these cloths a year I will never know, I know you expect me to be 'Pro ILFORD' but I love this product, I mean I really love it once you buy one you I promise you will never be without one.
    I have one, and I swear by it. It might be the best kept secret in dust control.

    What about the difference between metal and plastic negative carriers?

    (One difference for instance between the modular enlarger systems from Kaiser and Dunco is that the former has plastic, the latter metal carrieres.)

    Kaiser carriers are made of hard plastic with some metal parts included. I don't think they attract dust at all.

    You can still purchase new 1" and 3" static master brushes and 250 microcurie replacement cartridges from Amstat Industries, Glenview, IL, Toll Free (800) 783-9999.
    These are the finest negative dust removing brushes available. There is still a thriving antistatic alpha particle-ionizing brush industry here in the US due to the many uses of these brushes in biotech. I use these in tandem with the visible dust arctic butterfly electrostatic brushes that are easily available for dslr sensor cleaning. Buy a number of arctic butterfly brush attachments, and keep the ones you use for negative cleaning separate from those you would use for sensor cleaning.

    If the dust is stuck on the base side, I just gently use my thumb.
