Small repairs such as mending rips can be successfully undertaken with archival quality materials and a little practice on items of little value; never use cellophane tape! Newspapers printed on woodpulp newsprint, in general use after ca. 1885 are at risk of future deterioration due to the high acidic content of such paper. Deacidification, or neutralizing the dangerous acids present in many papers, is a remedy for this problem, and is particularly recommended for the more valuable papers. Some solutions are available for use at home, which can be sprayed on the paper, or others that release deacidifying agents into the air may be used. Most of these products have a level of toxicity, and so should be used with great care, following the manufacturer's instructions to the letter.
