i use a windshield wiper and squeegee on a piece of plexiglass.
rc and fiber both sides. then rc face up on the drying rack ( screen )
fb face down on the drying rack.
i also have a few lines across the sink and from time to time
hang things either by a corner ( rc )
or by 2 corners ( fb )
or back to back and 2 corners ( single weight fb )..
i had always heard if one doesn't blot off the excess water
water marks will appear on fb prints, rc the water runs off by itself
... not sure if this is an urban legend or would it be a lab legend ?
I squeegee both sides and place face down on drying racks I built out of canvas stretcher frames. The dryer the air is the more likely the print is to curl. mine dry over night and are pretty flat with a slight curl toward the emulsion. About a minute in the dry mount press between to pieces of clean mat board make an excellent presentation.
Only on apug can one find so many responses to a question on squeegeing! I squeegee both front and back of prints, one pass on each side, and I dry them on screens. Face up for RC, face down for fiber. I have used a windshield wiper for years. BTW, that is what Ansel recommends too, he probably took it off one of his Internationals, or maybe his white Caddilac.
I make fiber prints for a living............ we have a thick piece of regular glass (plexi may scratch or burr over time) and we always squeegee the back of the print. It will help reduce curl which could result in krinking.
