Domestos: Let your photos shine bright!!!


Letting your film-roll swim in boiling water with a little bit of a household cleaner will give your photos a blue and shining fog.

it is spring time and everybody is cleaning their houses, why shouldn’t your film-roll shine as well?!

a few days before i was looking for an other ingredient for my film-roll-lab. I saw the household cleaner based on sodium hypochlorite and thought, why should the film not be cleaned before exposing it?!?!?! Didn’t waste any time, and started to boil water and gave some of the domestos to it, mixed it a little bit and let the film-roll swim for about 30min.

After letting the pulled-out film dry over the heater for a night, i went outside to shoot some photos.
here are some results out of the album:
