I don't post in this category often, so I hope this isn't one of those questions that gets asked all the time and people roll their eyes when they see it again... (I did do a search and didn't see anything)
Anyway, I have a bunch of old book covers that I'm planning on using to make some journals. But some of them are really dirty. I bought some stuff called absorene that was recommended somewhere else, but it's not really working as well as I had hoped. Maybe I'm using it wrong. Or maybe my expectations are too high.
I also tried using rubbing alcohol. On smooth book covers that works pretty well, but it tends to take off some of the color. So it's not ideal.
Also, is there anything I can do about flocking? (I think it's called flocking. I mean the little spots that form on books. I think it might be mold or mildew or something awful like that...)
I have this AWESOME book cover called "Look Out for Pirates!" that I am so in love with, but it has some flocking.
