RE: haunted VDB

Forgot to add this between 1 and 2:
- Wash in plain water for further 4-5 minutes, chaning water at least 4

BTW, I was chaning fixer every 3 prints since it was very diluted...

Are the prints also fading along with changing color? If they're also fading
I'd suspect the porfolio and/or a mistake in processing. Have you cleared
and washed well the prints? Do you notice a yellow stain (most notably when
looking under a bluish fluorescent light?

See my procedure below:
1. Wash 2 mins in 2 separate baths of dilute citric acid (a dessert spoon to
2000ml water)
2. Gold tone (optional)
3. Fix for 2 mins. in 2% plain sodium thiosulfate
4. Wash for 15 minutes chaning water at least 5 times.

No problems with untoned (yet!) and toned prints as old as 6 years so far...

Hi Cor,

No treatment other than normal processing and washing.
