    The constant agitation helps to remove the dye, but remember what PE said. There is no harm in the dye anyway. If you want to get rid of it, use HCA and wash longer.

    Really though, Tri-x is a great film. I recommend no pre-soak, rinse for a minute or so after a fix for 5 minutes, then hypo clear 2 minutes and a 10 minute wash. You'll be good to go.

    simply put :the longer you processing wet time (regardless in what)the more of the harmless purple anti-halation dye will wash out. however,a few steps will certainly grt rid of it:
    1. a 10-minute hypoclearing bath.
    two-bath fixing, followed by hca and a 10-minute wash.
    3. onehour-exposure to uv(sunor face tanning unit, buti have never tested this!)
