    Drying film in a bathroom filled with steam reduced my dust problem to almost 0, when I used to developed my film in one. Now I hang to dry in a closed space.

    Re: Suggestions for drying film

    We have a stall shower that never gets used. I run the hot water for a minute, close the door, then process my film (in another room). I hang the film from binder clips attached to plastic coat hangers and dab off the water on the bottom corner occasionally. I do plan to look into plastic clips soon, but haven't yet.

    The faster something dries, the more chance of curl I've noticed. I use the same drying method and location for all sizes of film and don't have much curl at all.

    Before I ferget, here's a link to the clips that I was describing.

    They have the loop, which I use to hang them. Or they will hang on a hanger going the other direction.
