 Among the many different books I read, I like historical novels by authors who do proper research and transport you fully to the era in which they've set their story. Sometimes I come across information that's still useful. For instance, cleaning a painting. A few centuries ago, and maybe still today for all I know, they used milk because it didn't damage the painting.

So when I acquired an old painting (reproduction) that had become grimy over the years, I soaked some cotton wool in milk and gently rubbed it all over. Before long, the cotton wool was black with dirt.

AFTER
Got milk?
