Use the "FLO" labeled fluid with the chems.. It's Kodak PhotoFlo, so 
after a 4 min rinse, dump your film into the PhotoFlo for 2-4 min or so 
... then take it out and hang it, while doing that quickly wet the 
squeegee with PhotoFlo...you want to only ever have the film/squeegee 
come into contact with Flo after this point.

Squeegee per usual method, and then watch as your film magically dries 
super quick without spotting.
