    Force Expiring Film

    I want to force expire some film quickly. Don't worry it's not expensive film (Kodak Gold). Anybody know what's best I thought of sticking it through the dryer, or in the toaster oven. Anybody know what's best?

    Don't know what is best, but here are a couple of other options that come to mind:

    Pull it out of the cassette and wind it back in. (Do it fast so it isn't totally fogged).

    Send through a checked luggage scanner at the airport.

    Feed it to your dog (or pet goat, if you have one) and use it after you retrieve it.

    Oh... forget about the last idea. That would be "excreted", not "expired".

    Or just buy some expired film on ebay.

    Leave it in a hot car for a couple of days. Put it in your attic for a few days. Microwaving it will likely do nothing as the actual film is in a metal can. Faraday shielding will prevent the actual microwave energy to get to the film. Besides, there's very little water to actually heat up.

    You don't want it so hot that it'll melt though. So oven is out.
    Develop, stop, fix.... wait.... where's my film?

    You are assuming the film is 35mm. The OP never said, for all we know it could be 120mm or sheet film.
