Hello all,

I am looking for recommendations of literature about the safe removal of 
mothball residue and scent (I do not have any information about the exact 
chemical or product used; I am simply faced with some artifacts with VERY 
strong scent of mothballs). All I can gather is that PPE and fume hood will be 
required for work on the objects, but I am wondering in particular if there is 
a way to significantly reduce-or remove, ideally-the scent and residue so that 
objects are safe to display in public areas and with other art objects.

Please reply with any suggestions you might have!
Thank you kindly.
