Leaky Fork Oil Seal ?

Noticed a small oil leak on the left fork of my bike. Some one on the SV forum netioned using a 35mm film to clear the dirt particles that accumulate inside the oil seal. Wasn't sure how to do this so I punched this in to a search engine and found this video. Saved me a few hundred  $$ local shop was going to charge me for replacing the fork seals.
