Dust cloths

From: Hilary A. Kaplan <bm.gsk>
Date: Monday, November 4, 1996
Thank you Sue Lee Bechtold for responding with NARA's findings on
dust cloths.  Not only was your response important to clarify test
findings, but also because it demonstrates that there are real
people doing actual testing of materials, and such testing must be
interpreted in context.  Many individuals are lured into a false
sense of security when they are told that a well known institution
has said a particular product is O.K.  Surely no product that
dirties one's hands is appropriate for use on original materials.
