At the moment I fix in rapid fix for the first bath, rinse then give a 2nd fix in rapid fix, and give it a good rinse before going into the toner. Have had no staining problems, yet.

But would it be best if I went over to trying just sodium thiosulate fixers as my fix instead of rapid fix? It would save a lot of time if I went straight from the 2nd fix to the toner.
