What cleaner do you guys recommend for cleaning my old 8mm & Super 8mm film? And what type of cloth? Where can I order these things online? I will be doing this by hand and I am sure these films need cleaning after 25-30 years without ever being properly cleaned.

Also, how would you go about cleaning slides?

Terrance,

For regular dust buildup on slides I normally use a camel's hair blower/brush along with a lint free cloth. As for 8mm, if you use the search feature above and enter "film cleaning" you'll find dozens and dozens of threads with great information and tips.

Steve Osborne of The Reel Image sells cloth and Film Renew. Good combo in my opinion
