How can I clean the negative strip

Asked By 0 points N/A Posted on -

This is the first time I’m going to use the film scanner in our school. It has 4000 dpi, but it doesn’t have any blower etc. In order to clean the negatives before loading will be made I’ve observed that there were plenty of elements and even a few fingerprints on the scanned images.

How could I clean the negative strip Do I have to do it I do it right away before loading? I need some suggestions, tips from anybody.
