Film is pretty filthy stuff

PostThu Nov 30, 2017 1:30 pm

I was working with a 16mm 1940’s film that was a hurricane survivor. I normally use Edwal Anti Stat Film Cleaner to clean the films, but this film was particularly messed up. While the Edwal cleaned some of the dirt off, it left a lot to be desired in the cleaning dept. So, I decided to give Urbanski’s Filmrenew a try. I was amazed with what the Filmrenew cleaned off the film.

I've used FilmRenew for several years, and it works great. So well, that I've used it all up...

I clean my films in our garage with the garage door open, so that the fumes don't bother me.
