Removing photographic fixer stains

Netters - 

Some Time ago, I sent the following message to METHODS-AND-REAGENTS. I got a
number of replies, requesting that I share whatever I came up with. However,
nobody had a recipe. I therefore thought I'd try BIOFORUM to reach a wider
audience. If you have any clues, please respond by Email, since I don't
read this newsgroup. (We use Kodak GBX Developer and Fixer, by the way.)
