Re: stinky stuff

PVA, methyl cellulose, and starch pastes can all mold.  No one has mentioned
this recently, so let's talk about working procedure.  You should have your
stock of adhesive (of whatever sort) and remove the working supply from the
stock.  Do not dip a brush or a finger into the main supply.  Likewise,
don't return "leftover" adhesive to the main supply. Careful procedure
should cut down on contamination and on mold growth, no matter what your
weather is.
