For some time, I have used C-41 "Flexicolor RA" fixer as a general fixer for everything with excellent results. I was once told it was an alkaline fixer. Wheteher that is true or not I do not know.

Here is my question: Can one use regular, plain old fixer, hardening or non-hardening, for C-41? I have several bags of Arista fixer, that appears to be a non hardening variety. I've run out of the regular Flexicolor RA and am wondering if I can use up the inventory of this stuff before ordering more Flexicolor, or for that matter, bothering with the Flexicolor at all. I don't have a problem buying the Flexicolor if needed, but if it isn't all that necessary it would be once less thing to have to keep around.
