Elizabeth Buschor, Senior Paper Conservator at the Upper Midwest
Conservation Association, is treating several works of art on paper
that have acquired a cigar-smoke smell.  She has tried a general
airing out, in combination with lengthy exposure times to unscented
kitty litter in a chamber.  The smell has not been completely
removed.  Has anyone experienced a successful treatment in removing
cigar-smoke smell?
