    Unless the tub is full of some sort of liquid, nothing will happen..... ok, just kidding. But I think it's unclear what you mean.

    I've heard of burning, scratching, sanding, toning, bleaching, and I'm not sure what else.
    Nothing specific to bathtubs though.

    Ektachrome (and lots of others) from the '60's will do that all by itself, no tub needed

    I don't know what water would do to film before processing. I think it might damage it a bit too much, like make it unusable. For color shifts, try heating it. Maybe put it in a 200 degree oven for an hour or something. I'd be very curious to see the result.

    Leave the film in the sun outdoors for a few months. :o

    How about soaking in very warm(not hot) water to remove the AH coating prior to use. Might be able to do this with 35mm film in the cassette without removing the film first. May need several rinses to clear all the dye, then hope it doesnt stick together.
