[pure-silver] Re: Paper Towels?

John -

I didn't mean to infer that your question wasn't valid - it's just that we were in the midst of a circular "what is art" discussion.

For dust control, the best thing I've found - learned from a pro lab which used them to clean glass neg holders in enlargers, among other uses - is an old-fashioned baby diaper, machine washed at least a dozen times before use. They are extremely soft and kind to surfaces, they're as lint-free as any cotton product I've ever seen, and they do a great job of trapping dust - not just moving it around.

Now, the question is - can you still buy cotton diapers? My younger child is 34, and hasn't worn diapers for quite some time, and my grandkids are, of course, "Pampered" (or some similar brand). I still have 3 or 4, which I use, but haven't tried buying new ones.

Well it is kind of obvious that dust control is the important point. I just thought there might be a product available that I wasn't aware of. Is everyone on the list using Photowipes?

WHO is this person that wants to know about "Photowipes"? The important point is - is the dust "ART"? <g>

I've been using Premier Professional Photowipes in my darkroom and about to run out. I'm reasonable happy with them, but before I order some more, I thought I'd check with the collected wisdom of this group and see what everyone else is using.
Anything better? Less dusty? Cheaper?
