Cleaning a 40 y.o. Polaroid
I've enhanced the dirt on this pass:
Polaroid suggest cleaning the film off of a print with mild vinegar. Has anyone done this? What do I recoat the image with as the emulsion beneath is very fragile?
For me, too much color information is gone but I could turn it back into a nice sepia image.
I've my share of restoration work but I haven't had to deal with this much dirt and this is my first old Polaroid.

Ummm...I added some blue to better show the dirt and damage. It does a better job of showing off the smudge coating.
