Re: [BKARTS] kitty litter



Here is an added measure (after puting the volume in question in an airtight
container, plastic bag, etc.):  interleaf text with newsprint, either
printer or not.  You may not be able to interleave all pages at once, so
figure out a method for isolating the detoxed pages, and remember to destroy
the interleaves after use.

Subject: kitty litter


can someone refer me to the dates of the discussion about using kitty
litter to remove the moldy smell of old books? have recently purchased
an old book from the 1890s that someone used as the base for a
scrapbook...very interesting book to have but it smells moldy. rather
than re-invent the wheel here by re-discussing the use of cat litter
(and risk pissing off anyone, pardon the pun) could someone just tell me
which issues i should look at for the info? i can't seem to find the
when of the postings.
thanks.
