Polyester film cut-offs for cleaning archaeological combs

Kate Bernaciak from Ośrodek Archeologiczno-Numizmatyczny w Głogowie uses polyester film off-cuts as a conservation tool to get rid of the debris from in-between the teeth of archaeological combs. In her experience it is a great tool that does not damage the surface of the object and easily reaches tight spaces.
