You also increase the risk of doing physical damage to the film or emulsion any time you use cleaning solutions on the film.

I don't know what trained archivists recommend. In recent years I've avoided any attempts to do more than blow and brush dust off.

With some of my pix, that means there's a lot of Photoshop clean-up to be done. And much of the oldest and dirtiest of the film is half-frame 35mm, so each little mote of dust is twice as much damage.
