    All of the suggestions have merit. But why not keep it simple: the old trick of a packet of BBs, then rolling them around in the bottle of hot liquid works and has no possible ill effects, other than being a bit slow. As i mentioned before, I found the gravel used in the bottom of fish aquariums worked extremely well. A small bag of that costs very little. End of problem.

    Yep - I remember that John. But then I thought, (and I try and avoid that - gives me headaches!!) all that does is neutralize the alkaline developer and if there's any trace of stop left in the dev. tray - your next batch s messed up. It's like I was saying earlier in the thread - I use something to clean up - then I worry whether I've cleaned up the cleaning agent properly.

    I've decided to just keep taking the meds - a nice single malt with a touch of ice. After a few of those I just don't give a rats rump.

    Ahh, yes. And some Stolly, for drying negs; and for Stolly Wolly cleaning, too. The Stolly can be used to clean the lens on an Olly, too!!

    BTW, those old lab rats did everything "wrong." Smoked (although mainly chewed) cigars in the darkroom. Left FB prints in the stop all morning--and fixed them before going to lunch; carried 100 rolls worth of uncut 120 negs slung over the shoulder from room to room.
