Re: Please Help!!!

Countrybird1, I'm glad you bumped this. I have some old photos that got damaged in an incident involving an old washer line. Also have some negs that are pulling apart with some of the negative attatched to the neg next to it. This is a very helpful thread.

Be careful with that steam, some of the older color prints including polaroids will have there emulsion (the image) slide right off in the water. I would suggest room temp distilled and whoever said photoflow was right on track for the negatives. Don't put it on your prints though. Soak your prints and let the come apart as much as possible on their own with rocking of the tray. Soaked color prints will get a funky little color shift and feel slimy sometimes but they will dry back down fine.
