A Fisheye 2 and a Kodak Color Plus straight to the Dishwasher

Putting films in the dishwasher? Why not! Try this experiment at home, like I did.

Okay, I must admit this was the first time I ever tried something like that.

I took a Kodak ColorPlus 200 and I placed it in the dishwasher, together with all the dirty dishes: long cycle at 65 degrees. Do you think I exaggerated?!

Let’s find out!

As I took the film out from the dishwasher, I left it in balcony to dry for a few days.

And then? Well, I put the film in my Fisheye No. 2 and I decided to go out for a walk. When I went to the lab to get my film back after development, on the package it was written “Film Received Wet.” Oooops!

I then scanned the rolls to see the results of this crazy experiment. Here they are:

    I have to agree.. this is crazy! I would love to try one but then I have to find cheap film to waste if i want to do this. I like how the effect of the 'melted' film. looks kinda micro-lab-crazy-scientist. haha

    But tell your lab next time, what you did to your film... if not, they might not develop it or it can ruin the developer. And you don't want them to hate you right?! ;)
    But the results are amazing!

    have done this a few time, always fun result :)

    A tips is to ask the developer/shop to develop the dishwased film just before they change the chems, this way it wont ruin the machine..
