Re: [BKARTS] Old Photos / Old Photo Albums



I would do this mechanically--tht is, without any moisture or chemicals.
First get as much paper off as you can with a thin palette knife or similar;
then sand to remove the rest.  I've found this paper is usually in pretty
poor shape, so is hairly easy to remove.  Wear a mask when sanding.

Does anyone know of a nontoxic way to remove old photographs from the
black paper pages of old photo albums?
