Identifying substance on furniture

From: Linda Berko <ljberko>
Date: Wednesday, August 25, 1999
I have had an inquiry from the public regarding a blue powdery
substance (not mould) found in a piece of furniture originally from
Holland.  It has been suggested to the owner that it may be some
sort of insecticide. Does anyone from Europe have any experience or
information with such a substance?
