if it hasn't been exposed, shouldn't it just wash off?  i've often pondered this as well

Hi list!
I pulled out some old cyanotype paper that i coated in the autumn, and
it's too old. Or, is it? I've read somewhere i should soak it for an
hour after the final rinse and that this would save it, but it has not
worked - assuming it's water i should soak it in!
Any other ideas, or shall i just throw away this expensive paper
(although the chemistry was cheap!). ANy tips mucho appreciated.
