    Default RCM cleaning solutions - current

    I have just picked up a new Project RCM at a good price, I was wondering what everyone is using currently as a cleaning solution.
    I know there is a sticky thread of Marcoís, just looking more current experiences and recommendations before I order gallons of distilled water.
    Regards
    Robin

    Thanks Nick, will check online for suppliers, as I don’t we have locally open at the moment which would stock those items.

    I use a 60/40 mix of distilled water and IPA with a couple of table spoons of Ilfotol wetting agent in my ultrasonic bath, it works well

    Default Ilfotol

    HI Guys

    Just checking on the price of Ilford Ilfotol, best price i've found if you're UK based is Mathers of Bolton £11.95 + p&p for 1 litre https://www.mathersoflancashire.co.u...-1ltr-237.html - they don't post out unfortunately as they use Royal Mail. AG Photographic in Birmingham £14.54 & Silverprint in Dorset £21.16 Yikes!! (Both 1 litre both + p&p) they both use couriers so you can get it delivered. Pity Mathers don't though.

    I still have a darkroom to produce my fine art black & white prints & still have plenty of Ilfotol left from a bottle I bought ages ago, it lasts quite a while.

    Hope this helps.

    Many thanks Clint, unfortunately due to the current crisis there has been a shortage of certain products and also a subsequent price hike.
    Regards

    As an alternative to Ilford Ilfotol you could get a 10ml bottle of Triton x 100 from the bay for about £8.
    Mix it with 80ml distilled water and 10ml of isopropyl and use that instead.
    Also I have started using deionised water from halfords or tesco with no discernable difference in sound quality.
