    I’m not one to argue with that statement, but you may want to use a higher dilution with Efke films – say HC 110 1 + 50 @ 20C for 8 or maybe 9 minutes as a starting point. Gentle agitation once a minute and use a plain water stop bath. This recommendation is however, like Mr Brunner’s, based on guesswork and I have no idea if negatives from pinhole cameras need higher contrast than normal.

    After further review of the play, I believe Uhner's advice may be more on track. I use HC110 1:50 (that's mixed strait from the bottle, not a "working solution) @ 20C (68f) for 13 minutes on FP4 rated 100 with decent results FWIW.
    That's just, like, my opinion, man...

    Don't mess with anything that requires adequate ventilation unless you have adequate ventilation. A bathroom without a fan would be a very bad place to do selenium toning because those fumes are extremely irritating. Same goes for mixing up solutions from powders - ventilation and dust protection. Don't toss the stuff around and leave clouds of dust in the air, pour carefully.

    As for regular B&W chemistry (develop, stop & fix), make sure you rinse everything thoroughly and you shouldn't have a problem. I don't know that I'd be doing it in the kitchen sink (though I have, albeit for only a few times, used mine), but this stuff is all very water soluble (it's in solution as-used, right?) so you just have to wash it off to ensure you don't leave residues (something I wish my shared darkroom cohabitants would figure out ).
