INFORMATION ON PAPER MONEY CLEANING SOUGHT

Web site visitor Amr Khalifa writes: "I collect mainly paper currency 
from different countries. Some of these are soiled, or have some 
writing on them. They are not like “museum” pieces or anything, and 
I just thought if only I could clean them up a little I would enjoy 
the way they look more.

"I used to collect coins and I know that cleaning coins is a big "no no" 
as it can deteriorate their value to collectors So I thought there 
must be some issues with cleaning old paper money, but I couldn’t find 
any material on “HOW TO” or pros and cons, or dos and don'ts. Do 
you have any idea where I could go for information?"

[So ... can anyone refer us to a good source of information on paper 
money cleaning and conservation? -Editor]
