Re: [BKARTS] musty smells



I tried this on the advice of a paper conservator, but it was not
successful.  And we didn't bury the books, but put them into a closed
container, the books on a grid away from the kitty litter, as described in
the recent method using baking soda.  I think baking soda or charcoal might
be more effective than kitty litter.

I have heard that a good way to remove musty smells (without adding
obnoxious new ones) is to bury the book in kitty litter.
