Flood Recovery Booklet

Six Tips For Saving Wet Books

  1. Insert a paper towel about every 50 pages.
  2. Stand the book on end on several sheets of toweling.
  3. Open only the covers.
  4. Frequently turn the book over, so that the top and bottom are reversed, and replace the paper toweling when wet.
  5. Make sure that there is good ventilation. A fan is a big help.
  6. After the book dries, put weights on top of the book to flatten it out.
