Cleaning transparencies

    I've got 40-50 transparencies that got some smoke damage in a recent fire in my
    home.

    So far, I've been unable to locate a commercial photo outfit to do the
    cleaning, so am considering doing it myself, something that doesn't make me
    really happy, but is bearable.

    I sold off my darkroom gear years ago, when arthritis got bad enough to make
    filling reels a chore, so I'm out of touch with chemicals. It does seem as if
    either Pec emulsion cleaner or Rexton cleaner will do the job, along with Pec
    wipes. I guess I'll also need cotton or nylon gloves, slide mounts, and a paper
    mount opener (about half and half paper and plastic). Then a static brush, and
    some clips to hang the stuff, if that's needed.

    Can anyone provide any other suggestions for chemicals, clean up wipes, or a
    lab that will actually do the cleaning.

    Respond here, or e-mail me by dropping the "bleah" above.
