    I will also try to eliminate the washing process. I only use small paper to check pH of the solution, so it is rather hard to tell any small deviation. But I know it is around pH 7 in my situation.

    Thank you again for your input.

    How much you use will depend a lot on the sizing on the paper. With Stonhenge I am using about 5 ml per coating for a 12X17 sheet, or a total of 10 ml for double coating. I don't think that is much different from what you are using. And if you must err, better to do it on the side of too much than too little.

    It should have crossed my mind sooner that the washing steps after developing and after clearing would not be necessary when using sodium citrate developer, citric acid clearing bath and a toner that contains citric acid.
