I don't clean my desk! Maybe that's why. THe thing is, the printouts that faded, were stacked together in a pile..around 10 printouts. some faded, some didn't. I will try to isolate the cause and perhpas it was some kind of chemical reaction...makes me lose much confidence in the new Photo Paper ...in fact, prints handing on the wall for months now (in well lit room) are still going strong so I can't figure out what's up... kokleong http://come.to/digitaldarkroom Bruce Roorda wrote: > What do you use to clean the surface of your desk?
