Evidence is given that magnetic sites, showing remanence and hysteresis, significantly affect wall relaxation in spin-exchange cells. It is demonstrated that large reversible changes in T1-1, and hence in the corresponding surface relaxation sites, are induced in such cells mainly by exposing them to a large (10 KG) magnetic field. This effect is correlated with the presence of Rb in these cells.
