Ben,

If you read my reply regarding the use of distilled water you will get your answer. The older glues were generally made with animal products. The expressing 'sending the horse to the glue factory' is actually true. Most of the older glues tend to dissolve quite easily.

I just used that method on some 1932 Olympic programs. They were attached to scrapbook pages using hole reinforcers. For those of us not old enough to remember they are the little white rings you could stick to your notebook paper when the holes were torn. These were used to affix the programs to the scrapbook pages. I was able to remove the programs from the pages, but the reinforcers were still stuck to the program. Using distilled water and q-tips I removed them. I wet the q-tip and rubbed it on the reinforcer to soak it. They pulled right off with no damage and the water dried quick enough so there was no wrinkling to the program.

I have also used this method to remove other items from scrapbooks - steamer trunk stickers, stamps and the such.

On the card side they discuss soaking cards and the such. Plain water can damage the inks as it can contain chlorine and other minerals. Please remember DISTILLED water.

Default Lighter Fluid

Not sure how it would work on adhesive that's been on a long time like a scrap book...but many years ago an antiques dealer who was retired from 3M told me about using lighter fluid to remove tape and glue from antiques and paper...works very well for me...there is little to no controlling where it goes when you squirt a little on...but when it dries it's invisible...I use Ronsonol...comes in a yellow plastic bottle…lots of stores carry it...I think even grocery stores...

Ben,
Distilled room temperature water and a bit of time is the answer with vintage glue, pre 1950.
Any specific questions?
E-mail me directly please.
