Re: Cleaning Slides ?

I go to the pharmacy counter and get swabs on long wooden sticks, They're not on the shelves, so you have to ask for them. They aren't puffy and linty like regular Q-Tips and the long sticks make them much easier to handle than boxed Q-Tips. You can get a bunch of them for less than a dollar. With these and a bottle of slide-cleaning solution from my camera store, I get fantastic results on old slides.
