APUG is great, but also points up details that we might not worry about if we didn't read here! I have two bulk rolls of Arista premium 400 in my refrigerator. I also have an old Llloyd bulk loader, and bought the little handle for it from Freestyle. The bulk loader was in a storage shed until I got my hands on it a few months ago.

So... I was planning to wash the loader really well, let it dry, then pull a strip of swiffer ( micro fiber ) material through it. Am I asking for trouble with dust and scratches? I don't know how common and serious the problem of film scratching is in bulk loading. Do you all treat your bulk loaders like precious diamonds, in a positive pressure clean room with custom dust filters? Or if I do a reasonably good job washing do I have nothing to fear?
