9781905400362: Household Secrets: Advice from National Trust Experts

This compendium of expert advice from the conservators at Britain’s National Trust will show you how to conserve, clean, and restore your household treasures. It is handily arranged into easy sections, such as ceramics, paintings, prints, books, floors, textiles, furniture, and metals. Everyone owns items that have sentimental value, from an old family print to long-held wedding gifts. These need not be precious antiques; nevertheless, they may need loving care to keep them in good condition. Frances Halahan, a highly skilled conservator, together with the Trust’s unrivaled team of experts, shows you how to identify what you have in your home. She then explains what products and techniques should be used to bring out their beauty and increase their longevity.
