  1. Hello everyone I have an important question!

    Why cant I use water for my stop bath? Why do I have to use chemicals?

    Please let me know ! Thanks

    You can use water, but it reduces fixer life from developer contamination. Indicator stop bath is a useful step and stops the chemical reaction of the developer, though not essential for films, beneficial, and IMO, necessary for traditional papers.
