Expired Dektol

In this episode I look at a couple of expired packs of Dektol to see if there are any differences from the fresh stuff, or if I can use it at all.

Kodak Dektol is a paper developer, and has been around a long time. It was introduced in the 1940’s as a replacement for D-72.

I come across expired chems now and then and recently acquired some cans dating back to the 1960’s. I know enough that powders last much longer than liquids, and most they were sealed very well.
