Tephratype....I'm going to HAVE to remember that! haha Mike, great idea about the static gun....I'm going to have to try that.
I find that if I dust everything when I go down & turn on my space heater, I have far fewer problems. There are some days that seem to be dustier than others. I've thought about running one of those small cold air vaporisers that you use in the kids' rooms when they are sick. That would definitely reduce static, which contributes to the dust staying airborne.
It's good that you've decided to block your darkroom off from the laundry, Sean. There's tons of lint on clothes. BUT, I guess I agree with Brian.... Just get in there & make a print! I had the SAME problem, but you can do it!! You've got us all rooting for you!!
