    Do NOT place color film into any water or other bath after the stabilzer or final rinse bath! This is necessary!!! I cannot stress it enough.

    You can gently squegee your film however, with a soft sponge or cloth soaked in stabilzer or final rinse!

    Interesting, because supposedly when negatives don't look blixed enough you're supposed to re-do and rinse. Nothing about re-doing stabilizer, which I had definitely wondered about.

    Other than the films that needed to be re-bleached/fixed, I haven't done anything after stabilizer. The foaminess just made me wonder, though. Maybe I'll try the soaked-cloth squeegee method.

    Please reread my other posts on this sujbect then.

    If negatives do not look good due to bleach and/or fix then redo the ENTIRE tail end. That is: Bleach-wash-Fix-wash-Final Rinse or Stabilzer.

    You must NEVER redo just one step in the tail end of a color process. You have to complete the entire cycle from where you enter it. After all, rebleaching does nothing if you don't refix, and you must wash and stabilize.

    Bringing back an old thread, because I just had the same experience with the same basic Tetenal press kit (although I've never seen better negs of my work...even from pro dip-n-dunk labs). Did we conclude that distilled water does indeed solve the problem, or is the supplemental final rinse stuff necessary?

    The final rinse or stabizer is ABSOLUTELY necessary for proper image stability.

    I meant in addition to or in place of the kit stabilizer

    What do you do to remove the water spots that have already occurred after processing in the Tetenal kit? Can I restabilize in a different brand of stabilizer? Can I just use regular film cleaner, as it looks like the spots are all on the base side?

    Rewash and stabilize is the only treatment that is non-damaging. You might try wiping with a very soft sponge wetted with stabilzer. The stabilzer should be the type that contains Photo Flo or the equivalent as one ingredient. Mixing it with Distilled Water might help.

    Can you reuse a batch of c41 final rinse, and if so for how long? (# of films, length of time)
