Paterson Film Squeegee
For removing one of the darkroom's regular annoyances: watermarks on your film that you only notice when you get to printing or scanning!
Watermarks are formed when the film still has droplets of water on the surface when it's hung to dry. Don't be tempted to use your fingers or a cloth to dry the film: the fibres in cloth and the oils on your skin can cause more permanent damage to the emulsion.
Instead use a squeegee for quick, easy and damage-free removal of all excess droplets. The soft rubber blades will catch all water without scratching the emulsion. Hurrah for easy scanning!

Struggled with water spots after developing film. I don’t always have access to photo flow or distilled water & this does exactly what it says on the tin, haven’t had any water spots or streaks since using this. I would highly recommend especially for anyone starting out with home development.
Work as they should and comfortable in the hand when using... Just make sure to clack them a few times just bbq things to make sure they are responsive
This works way better than my fingers ever did.
Works pretty well. Helps to prevent drying streaks on film. Wide enough or 35mm and 120.
