How to clean and maintain bellows?greenspun.com : LUSENET : Large format photography : One Thread
With some digging I found some info on the 4x5 camera I just purchased. I have not yet found any info. on how to clean and maintain the bellows. They are made of a dark green paper fibre type material. Could someone please help me out here? I have found plenty of info so far on how to fix light leaks and building bellows but no info on how to clean them.

I use a product called LEXOL-pH on my leather bellows. It is designed to gently clean leather furniture. Not sure how it would work on a paper bellows. Good luck!

You might talk with the people at Light Impressions, they make a was which is very good which I use on my bellows which are leather. They could advise you on what would work best with your material. Pat
