Dear Donia,

Q. Dear Donia,

How can I remove old photos from those pesky photo albums with the "waxy" pages and plastic cover sheets? When I remove the plastic covering sheet the photos are tightly stuck to the album page. help!

A. Dear Patricia,

These "magic" albums are notorious for getting stickier over time. However, you are in luck! The great folks from the Freer Gellery of Art and Arthur M. Sackler Gallery Archives have made a YouTube video that will be just what you need! It shows how to carefully remove you photos with of all things - dental floss (the unwaxed kind of course).

"How to get our of a sticky situation!"

Good luck and if you have any more questions, please don't hesitate to contact Dear Donia!
