THE USE OF IMMISCIBLE SOLVENT COMBINATIONS FOR THE CLEANING OF PAINTINGS

John Hook



5 CONCLUSION

The selection of a cleaning method naturally depends on the particular requirements of each painting. The use of immiscible solvent combinations is a method worthy of consideration when making the selection. In any case, the conservator should be aware of the role of moisture in the cleaning solutions.
