    Aurum,

    Gelatin emulsion holds the dyes.

    What is removed in C-41 process, compared to BW, is just metallic silver.

    I've heard great things about running it through the wash. My friend peter did it and his ektar ended up looking amazing.

    What do you mean by "wash"? Just washing processed film doesn't do anything to the image, but it can affect the longevity as the protection from final rinse is washed away. Washing before developer (prewet) doesn't do anything, either.

    Unroll the film in a dark bag with some glow in the dark items, re-roll and shoot to see what it looks like. I always take off my watch with glowing hands when I use the dark bag, but it might be interesting to see what it would do.

    I think you would need to know exactly what laundry soap was used to reproduce the same results, laundry soaps are generally the same in that they all wash your cloths, but the amounts of of phosphates, lye, surfactants, borax, and other chemicals are different depending on the brand the cleaning chemicals would effect the film in different ways. Maybe try several different brands and see what works best.

    patois, I think your friend got lucky and got the right detergent right off the bat.
