    OK, so the upshot is that agitation in trisodium phosphate will almost clear the remjet, but it isn't adequate alone.

    Is that what I'm hearing.

    Yes, when I read somewhere that a buffing wheel is used to remove the remainder of the remjet, I got aggressive and rewashed my film and scrubbed it witha terry towel instead of my cellulose sponges. Alot more came off. It's a real chore to remove that crap than it's worth.

    Persistant soaking works, at least so far. I have another test clip soaking, after three hours and two changes of solution it's nearly clean.
    Solution consists of : to 600ml water @110f, add one tablespoon borax, one tablespoon TSP, and dissolve completly. Then add enough cool water to make 1 liter, pour enough in a container to cover film and let soak. drain rinse and reapply once per hour until film is completely cleared.
