Re: [BKARTS] Deacidification question



Frank Mowery, Director of Conservation of the Folger Shakespeare Library, uses Bookeeper Spray to deacidify historical documents. I have also used it over the years and have had NO negative results with it. Unless these other products have the exact makeup are are personally used by institutions of high regard, I would use caution. There is nothing as being frugal when it comes to treating rare and important papers, only to find problems years later.

Question concerning deacidification solutions:
I am currently using the Bookkeeper Sray System utilizing the gallon jugs of
Bookkeeper solution and the 2-gallon compressor/tank/sprayer combo.  Does
anyone have experience with using the Paper Saver brand deacidification
solution in the Bookkeeper Spray System?


To this point I've only ever used Bookkeeper.  Any pros and cons when it
comes to Paper Saver?  It's substantially more affordable, and might
consider the switch, pending I'm not loosing out in the long run.


Thanks in advance...
