film cleaner

Post by Roy1 » Tue May 15, 2018 8:06 pm

HI. does anyone know where I can purchase a cleaning agent to clean Super 8 mm film. I've tried google and Ebay and got some firm in Germany but as all the details were in German I couldn't make head or tails of it. Thanks for any info.

Good morning Roy1,

You could try The Widescreen Centre for film cleaner.

Here's their website http://www.widescreen-centre.co.uk/film-department

It's £9.99 for a bottle.

The bad news is, that due to Royal Mail regulations they are unable to post this item, so it is FOR COLLECTION ONLY.

You can contact them at

2 Rosemary Lane, Sutton nr. Ely, Cambridgeshire, CB6 2NZ

or phone them on 01353 776199 or 07990 646466


I hope this has been of some help.

Thank you Cathy for the info. I did try to get their website via Google but some other site appeared instead. Unfortunately collecting the cleaner is out of the question as I live in the North East of England.

Good morning again Roy1,

You can buy Fotospeed FC50 Film Cleaner on ebay.

There are two companies selling it.

It's £12.75 or £15.19 depending who you buy from.

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Fotospeed-FC5 ... SwKIpWCWYl

or

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Fotospeed-FC5 ... 1eCABAVcPg

Both companies claim that they can send it to you, or better still (don't get too excited) you can have it delivered to your local branch of Argos.

I hope this information will be of some help.
