Let's drop this subject before someone else jumps in - there is no new information to discuss that we don't already know. Peace?

    Peace? There was never conflict, at least from my perspective. And information is always new to those who have yet to hear it.

    I was not just answering your post, but expanding mine.

    At least with LF landscape, a bad day of photography can still be a good day of exercise.

    I use the Potassium alum right after the cooling bath, followed by the wash.
    Thanks for the tip, Vaughn.

    The Potassium alum also hardens the gelatin, but it is not an immediate effect. In fact it is used (or was used) in pickling to harden the cell walls to keep the fruit (and cucumbers) from being mushy. Why it is used in underarm deorderants, I do not know.
