How to Dry Wet Paper
books, save soaked paper, revive your projects by taking these tips from
Patricia Paterno of Papemelroti (as shared on Umagang Kay Ganda, morning
show last early October 2009 after strong typhoons hit the Philippines
causing a lot of water damage)
one is clear an area where you can dry your wet paper whether
these are books or single sheets. Choose a place that has
good air circulation. Use electric fans for this and let
these oscillate. This will hasten the drying process and
discourage the item having molds. Take note that if
you put the paper to dry out in the sun, some fading of print
maximum results, insert tissue/ plain newsprint or paper towels
in between every few pages. For books, don't overdo this
step as it may become deformed.
some cases, the only way to save a book is to freeze them while
they are wet and dry using vacuum freeze drying. You can
also do this if you don't have time to attend to your books yet.
