Remove any marks or stains from the pages with a white vinyl eraser. Pour rubbing alcohol into a cotton ball and squeeze out until it is no longer dripping. Never pour the alcohol directly onto the hard cover of the book. Gently wipe the hard cover of the book down with the cotton ball, using small circular motions.
Then, how do you clean a fabric book cover?
Carefully clean fabric covers with an art gum eraser. Excessive dirt may require a cloth dampened with fabric softener, but be aware this increases the risk of damage or mold. Make sure the book is fully dried before storing. Wipe with a slightly damp cloth as a last resort.
Secondly, how do you clean books? Clean the inside of your book. To clean page edges of an old book, wipe them with a slice of fresh white bread or with a natural bristle brush. You can also use a magnetic dusting cloth (which works well for your shelves, as well!) Make sure never to use chemically-treated dusting cloths, since this can cause damage.
Keeping this in consideration, how do you remove grease from hardcover books?
Residual oil and grease may be at least partially removed with paper towel and a warm iron. Some stains can often be improved with a kneaded rubber eraser or Absorene® Paper and Book Cleaner. Knead a small amount of Absorene in your hand until it is soft and rub it lightly in one direction over the soiled surface.
Is book mold dangerous?
Mold spores can be inhaled and are very harmful to the human body. By not removing mold from your books you and your loved ones could suffer from respiratory problems, infections, and even skin and eye irritation.
