    Any special reason you are avoiding buying one of the cheapest chemicals in photography? Used half-strength in distilled water, even a small bottle will last for years, unless you are processing a lot of film.

    Liquid dishsoap can replace Photo-Flo.
    Thank you.

    wow, you use it half strength ?

    i have a film processing tube or rack of film in a washer
    and i use about 3 drops of the stuff .
    i had a teacher who was militant about that stuff.
    his TA was the only person allowed to photoflow people's flm
    he poured a tiny bit in the cap and drizzled it in about 3 people's film ..

    i guess it made an impression on me, cause i was a lab rat for a guy for a very
    small amount of time, and he mixed it full strength as the bottle suggested ..
    i had never seen that before, and thought he was crazy!

    Yeah, because I don't know when I can get to a shop that has it, in the near term.

    Nope, sorry.

    Liquid soap contains scent and coloring matter. Both can leave scum and color on your film.

    I answered before I read the reference. I tend to shorten my answers after the 50th or 100th repeat of the same old question!

    Glad you remembered it.

    Thanks.
