Dear Kristin Lora
Yes, I have been there, done it, allthough with a merchantile
selenium sulphide solution. I eventually found out that I could avoid
the problem if I used a thinner solution and took the time for this
one to work. Also I think that when I use LoS that I get a far better
and more durable "oxydation" by using leaner solutions.
