Removing Adhesive Residue

From the Maryland State Archives' Instagram account:

Removing adhesive residue is never an easy process! This book had both packing tape and masking tape to remove. Most of the adhesive from the packing tape was removed with a crepe square. The yellowed adhesive of the masking tape was removed with swabs dipped in ethanol. Have to be careful though - too much ethanol or too much rubbing and the color comes off!
