Re: deacidification

Hello everyone,

   I was talking to our paper conservator today about the deacidification of
paper.  He was wondering if textile conservators use similar chemicals to
deacidify textiles.  They use Calcium Hydroxide or Magnesium Bicarbonate.  I had
never heard of using these chemicals with textiles.  Does anyone know if these,
or similar chemicals are ever used in the treatment of textiles?
