    FILM CLEANER

    Dear APUG people,

    Does somebody out there know a good alternative for the famous and now discontinued KODAK FILM CLEANER?

    Thank you all,

    Philippe

    Light Impresssions makes a good replacement, I don't remember the name offhand, but it works quite well.

    It is used for cleaning gunk off negatives/transparencies. For example, I had a number of transparencies that got infected with mold after our winter rains earlier this year. I used the Light Impressions product to clean them up.

    From Anchell's Darkroom Cookbook

    Ammonia, 28% concentrated 5 ml
    Distilled water 95 ml
    Isopropyl alcohol to make 1 liter

    listed as especially good for removing water spots.
