Odor removal

From: Scott K. Kellar <skellar>
Date: Thursday, May 7, 1992
Just talked to Patrick King of Midwest Freeze Dry Associates in Chicago
about this-- he's sold on woodruff, an odiferous herb (smells like new
mown grass) available at your local apothecary or alchemist shop. Just
soak it in alcohol till it looks green and brush, spray or roll onto the
affected pages. He has back-gassed it into his vacuum chamber (I'm serious)
to good affect after treating moldy books with a biocide. Have you noticed
how technology does a back-flip, ever and anon?
