I am about to digitize my old slides and negatives. Some will need more than a simple dust brush off. Is a water bath and photo-flo dip the best way to clean them?

Thanks

Rocket blower if not too dusty. FilmTools carries equipment for film/movie making, but they also have still camera equipment.

Beseler dust gun, you use a sweeping movement along the length of the strip of negatives.

Dust/wipe scanner. Spritz glass cleaner on a microfiber cloth then wipe the glass of the scanner.

Let things air dry. Handle negatives by the sides along the sprocket holes.
