    What to do with spare c-41 rollei digibase Bleach and Fixer bottles

    I few time ago I bought a 1 L c-41 rollei digibase kit, unopened on ebay. Last week i went to do the working solutions since I had color films in number to use the kit, but the part C was blue and ruined. I bought a new kit but have the beach and fixer bottles of the previous one, still closed.
    I think I read that bleach and the fixer have a great shelf life. Anyone want them? Or I should store them?

    They have a virtually infinite shelf life. Keep them in case you do something wrong with the replacement chemicals.

    First, thoroughly clean the bottles. If you can use them, keep the bottles for storage of other chemicals; otherwise, toss them out.

    No, they are full, unopened bottles.

    Keep them, they will last years and are the most expensive part of the kit (well, the bleach is expensive). Next time don't buy a whole kit, just buy the developer components which are comparatively cheap.

    Thanks, I will. But if someone needs bleach or fixer, tell me, I will send it!
