How to destroy negatives

After some searching, the most I saw was old-school types proclaiming how bad of an idea it is. I played around and found a way: bleach. Within 20 minutes in just a weak solution, the negatives will be stripped down to a clear strip of plastic (and possibly some emulsion). I even tried to redevelop the negatives in sepia toner, but nothing.

I also tried alcohol, which was surprisingly uneffective. It stripped something brown out of my black and white negatives, but after over a week in a sealed alcohol bath, the images were just as clear as before, only the film was a little softer.

So there you go: the recipe for erasing memories.
