Re: [BKARTS] Cleaning Vellum



Saliva works quite well, esp. if the vellum is not too dry and
cracking.  The cracks will hold dirt.

Don't make the vellum damp; spit on a cotton ball and go to work
on a small area; turn the ball to a dry side to dry the worked area
and move on (with the wet area), etc.
