Hi Bob,
Never done it but in my notes Michael Kravit added 2 drops per 5ml solution to stop bleeding.  I'm actually not sure why, when I was having such a tough time with bleeding, I did not try this technique.  It would have been a good test variable.

When the bleeding occurs it is so disturbing, too--you have this nice print going, and then all of a sudden your highlight areas get all messed up.  Even when soaking face down it still dulled the print it seemed.
