Has anyone tried this stuff? I don't mean spraying it on a comic (egad) -- I was thinking maybe using it to treat a long box.

Ever since I dipped my *spoon* in latex paint, I try not to act on every idea that pops into my head.

I think that life's too short for this. I want back my ignorance and bliss. I think I've had enough of this. Blow me... one last kiss.

You can tell the truth or you can lie. You can say I left you or I died. Say I'm in the Himalayas on some spiritual quest and could spend years lookin' for the light. Say I'm in the witness program with the F.B.I. Say a U.F.O. abducted me from home. Well, you can say what you chose, but I tell you the truth. You can say for sure I'm gone.

I hear you. I'm learning to ask first, because maybe someone else has already acted on that REALLY COOL idea that popped into my head...

Hose down a long box, toss in a few dozen *spoon* comics, and see what happens. I'm sure someone will be happy to donate some XForce books for this experiment.

You guys need to learn to think out of the box.

Deacidification sprays are quite common. If you do a search on the word, you'll find a few different threads on the subject. People do spray their own books.

I don't see the point in making a box acid free when your books are probably bagged and boarded (I'm assuming they are).

The books themselves are the problem as the acids in the paper is what causes degradation.

This is from a post I made last week:

I asked about it back in 2006 when I found out about it.
