My question would be: where is the point of diminishing returns on washing, and why would anyone want to leave the print with a softened gelatin when it was all done and dried? I've not been convinced that plain ordinary Kodak Fixer is still not the best way to go, and following Kodak's washing procedure. So far, prints I made 40 years ago are exactly as they were then. At that rate, it would have to be 200 years before they went sour.
I chimed in because I am making a switch of all procedures toward 8x10 and FB printing. Thank you.
