Humidification is an essential part in the conservation of paper, parchment and photographic prints. Especially when dealing with water sensitive objects the application of moisture creates problems that are usually solved with expensive high-tech equipment like a humidification chamber. The use of moisture permeable materials for this purpose, which allow humidity to reach the object without wetting it, offers easy and inexpensive techniques for the humidification of water sensitive obje cts. These investigations into the use of moisture permeable materials for humidification led as well to the development of new techniques which allow the removal of residual adhesive, old linings and stains from water sensitive objects.
