I was not suggesting just wiping "anything" on the books and I should have
been more specific. I used to go to a wonderful place in NYC that carried
all kinds of binding and preservation materials and assumed that one would
go to a reliable source especially if the book were "valuable" (they are
ALL valuable to ME !!). But I probably even have some of the "stuff"
whatever it was that they recommended. I certainly agree that prevention
is better than any remedy !
