Subject: Humidification


From: Karen Motylewski <nedcc>
Date: Wednesday, March 24, 1993
Materials can be flattened at home using a jury-rigged humidification
chamber, and NEDCC has a brief technical leaflet giving the procedure.
Please let me know if you'd like the handout and provide a mailing
address. Caution needs to be used in controlling the humidity (that is,
don't put material in the chamber and leave it for three days or you may
come back to find mold) and distinguishing material too brittle to be
helped much by humidification alone.
