Video: Adhesive tape removal

Watch Helen carefully removing adhesive tape from the binding of an old family Bible.

Using a cotton bud and a 100% acetone (a purer version of nail polish remover) Helen carefully softens the adhesive on the old adhesive tape, working gently from the loose edge lifting it gently to avoid damaging the book's cover. The whole process, condensed into this 1:40 minute video, takes much longer and calls for skill and patience.
