    Wah, you need to clean the remaining saliva on the film before processing. If not, the processing machine mixture will contaminated by your saliva .

    the lab need to cut the end part away and to tape the film on a leader to load into the machine, and they have to tape it firmly to prevent it drop off halfway thru the machine.
    even it self process B&W negative, most people also cut it away, so it is easier to load inside the reel.
    How you able get the end part, I do not know, anyway, what do you use to clean the little saliva off the film? using water?

    Maybe put camera to ear to help hear.
    Actually if you want to intentionally rewind the film to do double exposure, and your camera is one of those motor driven types, you just have to open your camera back in a darkbag or alternatively use a thick buttoned up jacket with the collar and bottom folded back and then manually wind the film after removing it.
    for added precaution, do it in a darkroom. Need some practice to remove the film from the camera by touch though.

    guys! any tips or not! been trying for like the past 20 mins.

    EDIT: okay! finally got it out. whew. after inserting i actually yanked it out. cos pulling it slowly like some previous posts suggested (hope i didn't read wrongly) will make the film leader getting stuck at the felt. hmm.
