There are stains on my prints.
Stains generally happen from the mishandling of prints. This can come from dirty trays, tongs, print washers, or contaminated drying racks. Make sure you do not cross contaminate your tongs or trays–so please properly drain your prints between chemicals. This could cause staining or the premature exhaustion of your chemicals as well. This is a common occurrence for beginners that are learning the process.
