                      Comments about Kodak Hypo Clearing Agent:

                      For over 20 years I have been using the good old Kodak Hypo clearing agent in it's signature yellow package. It is an essential part of my B&W darkroom.

                      My only wish is that Kodak would make a 1 liter package like back than.

                      Comments about Kodak Hypo Clearing Agent:

                      I use Kodak HCA to reduce wash times and insure that there will be no stains when I tone prints. It is easy to mix from powder and adds very little time to print processing. It is not recommended for Pyro processing of film.

                                    Good hypo wash. Makes prints more archival. gets the fixer out. clumps up pretty fast when you are mixing, so make sure to continuously stir the stuff when you are mixing

                                      I tried for a while to get by without this stuff, but had to spend too much time wiping off negatives before putting them in the enlarger. It's worth it.

                                        Just started home developing and this is my first hypo. Can't say much about except the value and convenience. Can be made into 1 gallon for easy storage and diluted before use.

                                            What can you say about Hypo Clearing Agent except that it is a vital part of film processing. Saves H2O and gets rid of all of that fixer. I just wish Kodak still made it in the smaller size.

                                              saves water.
                                              saves time.

                                              i've heard that its not necessary for standard films, but oh well.
