I finally got to test Filmguard on my films. Actually I drove to the cabin, forgot my new films and Filmguard. So I just had to drive home again to get it :-)
The bottle looks like this and comes with a set of instructions.

I used a cloth from Urbanski and my rewinders. It was easy and fast. The cloth looked like this when I was done.

I could not understand why it git brown at the edges. I realized that it was from the sound track and balance track. I assumed I had used too much pressure, but it did happen again when I used a lot less pressure. Maybe someone can enlighten me on this?
The first film I tried didn't have much stripes. But I could still see a difference. Here are screenshots before and after:

I then hit the film I own with most stripes. It was really annoying. The result was just plain amazing! I just couldn't believe it was so effective!

After the treatment it is no worse than most of my films. This will without a doubt be used more!
I failed to use rubber gloves as recommended. I will use that next time. I had a band aid on my thumb after cutting myself with a knife while fixing things on my cabin. It got Filmguard on it, and besides the fact that this is probably not the best treatment for a cut, the band aid got dissolved. AR least the glue did. I got a sticky mess on my thumb. I will use gloves next time. This is strong stuff. But it didn't smell too much as I was afraid of.
