The Paterson film squeegee is the best tool 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 Paterson 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!

Love these, they help my negatives dry a lot quicker than when I used my fingers. Highly recommend
A basic but essential item. Will last for years. Just be VERY careful about dust on it (as shown) when you squeegee the film dry- it can be a pain. A good stiff wipe down with a bone dry cloth beforehand should do it.
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.
