Subject: Re: Cleaning damaged 35mm slides?

I've used dish washing detergent to clean slides with good results but
never with smoke damage. After lightly rubbing the slide with detergent,
rinse thoroughly with water and let it dry. You may want to test it on a
not so important slide first to see if it works.
