Re: deacidification spray?



The Bookkeeper comes in a pump spray bottle as well as "aerosol." It can
also be used by dipping or brushing. Wei T'O is also available as a
liquid, but because the the ingredients go out of solution in the presence
of water (vapor is enough) it will crystalize/clog the nozzle. It can be
cleared using vinegar and then drying in alcohol, but it's just too much
of a pain in the #@#$% to be very effective. You'd be better of
dipping/brushing.

The active ingredients in this are magnesium carbonate brought into
solution. There are undoubtably others who can do a better job of
explaining this though...
