How to Remove Acid from Newspaper Clippings


Dissolve 1 Milk of Magnesia tablet or 2 teaspoons of magnesium carbonate in 1 quart of club soda in a plastic container, chill the mixture.

Sandwich the clipping between 2 pieces of screen or pellon (sold in fabric stores),

Using the chilled solution, soak the sandwich and keep wet for thirty minutes. Blot carefully with blotting paper.

Allow to dry overnight, on blotting paper on a flat smooth surface.

Once thoroughly dry, the clipping may be added to a scrapbook. Or to just store the clipping in a sealed, archival plastic bag.
