RE: haunted VDB
You actually need to change both clearing baths and first rinse water to get
rid of all unreacted silver and iron salts, no?
BTW, I reuse fixer unlike Sam because I mix it in 1000ml batches (weighting
20g is easier, especially so with kitchen measuring spoons as I do). That's
almost 8-9x the volume what Sam uses per print. So, if you use little fixer
like Sam does it's indeed a good advice to use fresh for each print.

I "develop" in plain water for 5 minutes and fix.
I don't change the water during development. Should I?
