I was really disappointed in this product and now have several cans of it. I was making memorabilia books for my Grampa's VFW, these photos and articles dated from 1914 to 1976 when he passed. I had been using archival mist on the articles - ran out, couldn't get a decent price on additional which the product is very hard to find; so thought I would try this product - not good. I was spraying articles in the last book from 1960-1976 it discolord the articles, if sprayed on colored paper it changed the color of the paper, newspaper articles were left with a nastly white film. When I attempted to brush off the film it also took the print - thankfully I already had every page backed up on my computer so I could re-produce the worst looking pages. I am not sure what this product will work on but the eight books I am working on now will be done as I find Archival Mist. Memorabilia can not afford to be ruined. Linda L Indianapolis
I've used this product and Wei'to, a similar product that deacidifies paper. The one big complaint I have with Make It Acid Free is that it leaves a white powder residue on the paper and it bleaches newspaper photographs. Wei'to doesn't do that. It takes a lot more Make It Acid Free to deacidify a document than does Wei'to which doesn't make it very economical. I recommend Wei'to for more valuable artifacts and documents because it doesn't leave a residue. Make It Acid Free is fine for documents that aren't that important but I wouldn't use it on a valuable document, newspaper article, etc. Also, be prepared to buy more cans of Make It Acid Free since it doesn't go very far.
This product is one that is somewhat difficult to find where I am, so I was glad to find it here. The only problem is that the title of the product on this website is misleading. It says that it is an spray adhesive. It is not an adhesive at all. It is just a spray to make paper and other things acid free. For example, I use it to make newspaper clippings less acidic before I mount them. But it is just for neutralizing acid. You need to get your own adhesive spray separately.
