    Spilled Beer.....

    Surely I can't be the first to have spilled some beer onto slide film....
    I blame it on the silly white gloves, slippery little devils

    What might you suggest the best way to go about cleaning Provia 100F of a Belgian white ale stain?

    Thank you

    So its that simple?

    I cleaned one with warm water last night and then it curled up into a tight little ball, but this morning it seems to have straightened itself out some.

    Thanks for getting back to me, Mark.

    I would actually say use one clothes pin to hold it to hold up somewhere and another to weight it at the other end.

    my sister works as a chemist at the Getty Conservation Institute, where they clean off artwork worth millions of dollars.

    Usually, water is what they use. Except for the watercolors, of course.

    Seems like a waste of beer to me. I recommend soaking the film in your mouth first to, uh, recover the spilled beer. As a side benefit I heard just last week that the enzymes in our saliva break down stains. Then rinse in clean water.

    But the moral of this story is stop wearing gloves (you are not handling the Ark of the Covenant) and never put any liquids on the same surface as your negs/slides.

    It's no use crying over spilt beer.

    Good thing it was a Belgian pale rather than a chocolate stout.

    Water (distilled is best), then E-6 Final Rinse. Dry in a dust free area.

It's a generous medium, photography." -- Lee Friedlander

    Is there a better way to keep fingerprints off slides when mounting them?
