Dirty film rollers can create spots in your photographs: learn how to clean the rollers of your Polaroid Now.
When you take a Polaroid photograph, the film goes through two metal rollers. These rollers spread developer paste between the negative and positive components of the photo to create the Polaroid photograph. If the rollers are dirty, the developer paste will not spread evenly, and can result in unwanted marks.
To clean the rollers, use a soft, damp cloth. Open the film door (the film can be left in the camera while cleaning), rotate the rollers by turning the black gear at the bottom left, and wipe the rollers with the cloth as they rotate. Make sure they’re dry before using the camera again. For best results, check the rollers between each pack of film and clean every 2-3 packs.
