Cleaning of Fire Damaged Watercolor and Textiles Using Atomic Oxygen – NASA – this is very interesting and is apparently quite effective, but where and how would you or I get our hands on some atomic oxygen – and what would we do with it once we got it?

I had a customer who had a fire in her condo last year and she had to have the piece that she purchased from me cleaned with that atomized method. It looks and feels exactly the same as when she purchased it. Amazing process.
