My first wish: A room full of books on shelves from floor to ceiling all around the room.
My second wish: (Fifteen years later) A way to clean the dust from thousands of books.
My third wish: (In fifteen years) I would like to have two dozen elves to take over my affordable way to clean these freaken books!
I’ve discovered through researching, the best way to clean your library requires a good hand vacuum cleaner, microfiber (magnetic) dust cloths, a clean paint brush, mask, gloves, and lots of time. I didn’t want to just redeposit the dust so after vacuuming, I took stacks of books outside on our deck. Here’s what you do next: Using the microfiber cloth wipe the outer pages and cover of the book. Take a clean paint brush and brush the pages of the closed book several times. Then flip the pages of each book. A slight breeze really helps. Before replacing the books be sure the shelves are clean and dry.
