    Great stuff, isn't it? Just make sure you get it from the correct part of the nose. I'll never forget the disucssion with the person who thought nose-grease was an internally-produced product like ear wax.

    Honestly, I'm QUITE amazed. I have a roll from our trip to Mexico where sand must have got on the felt (of the 35mm cartridge) and put several pretty deep and long scratch. All of those frames with scratches printed *just* fine.

    I am getting a bottle of Edwal's No-Scratch just in case I run out of my nose oil. My understanding is that these oil needs to be cleaned off the film each and every time. There isn't anything that will stay on the film permanently to fill those gouges, is there?
    Develop, stop, fix.... wait.... where's my film?

    You can pick your friends,
    You can pick your nose,
    But you can't pick your friend's nose.

    when i needed to descratch a sheet of film i dropped, and
    i was going to get it from the nose, almost as if
    the quality was better from behind the ear, or that nose grease
    had the tendency to do something bad to the film, or maybe it went rancid
    if the film wasn't stored "correctly" .. it was as if it was something only
    real photographers knew, you know, the same photographers who
    knew how to retouch so you couldn't see retouching marks, or shoot perfect slides without a meter
    just by judging the light and experience ...

    i never questioned it, and since march 1989 i haven't used anything but stuff from behind my ear ...

    of course, your mileage may vary ..

    Maybe if you are female and use cosmetic, nose wouldn't be a place to harvest.....
    It worked just fine for me though. I'm still amazed how well....
