I recently inherited a very old drymount press (which works like a charm) and a print dryer which I haven't used yet. I bought some beinfang platen cleaner for the press and was wondering if I could use the same stuff for the chrome plate on the dryer. It's pretty old and dirty. I noticed that the platen cleaner is kind of waxey. I also heard about something called bon-ami.
I've been drying my fiber prints on a screen face up, then tried face down. Face down they don't curl as much, but I still need to put them in the drymount press briefly to flatten them out.
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
thanks! (p.s...soooo love a site that is devoted to *analog* photography!)
