Subject: Soot


From: Robien van Gulik <teyler>
Date: Friday, July 26, 1996
The message of Claire Dean (Conservation DistList Instance: 10:11)
about the sootmaster sponge (of which I too have only heard
indirectly) has given me the idea for this request: has anyone on
the list any experience in removal of soot and smoke from objects? I
need information about this for the disaster plan for Teylers
Museum, and I have found it not easy to come by. I am interested in
the removal of soot and smoke from paper, books (leather and cloth
bound), oil paintings, coins, fossils, minerals, physical
instruments and furniture.
