Default Musty book smell treatment?

sorry if this has been discussed here in the past.

is there a way to reduce or eliminate book smell? i only have a couple that
are affected, so can't justify special chemicals or other material.

thanks!

Airing the book out might help. Sit it on a table for a few days and fan the
pages out. It might even be useful to set it in sunlight for a day with the
fanned out pages toward the sun.


Take a look at The Abbey Press, which publishes articles on conservation of
materials:
