Cleaning Paperback Books

Do you know that with their slick covers, the soil on paperback book covers can often be wiped off gently? Nice to know when passing around mysteries and so on to friends! (You can also cover them with clear contact paper to preserve them!)

My Mom was the queen of covering all books especially paperbacks. We would all read the same books in the family and with 7 people reading the same little paperback they get damaged. So Mom did the clear contact paper and she even used regular legal size paper to make covers or wax paper if we had to. Kept the books clean and neat.

Great tip to give out. I just do it as I grew up with it. Thanks for the tip.
