Re: [BKARTS] Old Book Smell



Old fashioned kitty litter.  Create a 'microchamber" by placing it in a
bag with kitty litter - the kind with charcoal as an active ingredient.
Seal the bag and replace kitty litter every couple of days until odor is
gone - the charcoal removes the odor.  
Good luck,
Michelle

Subject: [BKARTS] Old Book Smell


Hi folks, I recently acquired two older books (early 1900s) that are in
beautiful shape, but they have that OBS = Old Book Smell.  Musty, but
not moldy.  Are there any easy ways of minimizing this?  I've aired them
out, but the smell still remains.

 

thanks very much...this is a most informative list!
