Scanning negatives - Wash before scan?
I've got a build up of rolls of BW negatives, and I've just bought an Epson V500.
I just wondered, before I cut up the negatives into strips of 4, should I do a quick wash on the negatives to get any dust off? I don't yet have any film holder wallets, so I've been storing the rolls inside empty developing tanks for now.
So are there any recommendations before scanning? Due to my poor storage of the rolls, I imagine there's going to be a lot of curl on the negatives :(
Thanks so much for all advice!
