Buy a salad spinner from a place that handles kitchen supplies. 
Rinse in distilled water, but the reels on edge, axes radially, in the 
salad spinner, then crank it for half a minute. Make certain to 
balance the spinner with empty reels, if necessary. No contact with 
the negatives, very little water left.

Tetenal does make an alcohol bath that I used for a while, but it is 
fairly expensive.
