White Cotton Gloves

Just a quick heads up for friends here who like to develop and scan their own films.

Savers Chemists stores sell some quite decent white cotton gloves for 99p I think, or it might have been 1.99. They are intended for use in tanning booths I believe, and when applying moisturisers.

They are called WBM Beauty cotton gloves.

Anyhow, they are really handy for handling films without putting greasy paw marks on them. There doesn't seem to be any dust or lint from the gloves, but they would be easily washed.

I have bought similar gloves from a photographic store before but the quality was poor and the price was much higher.

I have also been using decorators' Tak Rags to lightly dust films before scanning them. Also sold as Norton Expert Pre-Paint dust cloths in B&Q they are impregnated with linseed oil to make them very slightly sticky which collects dust but leaves no deposits.
