Got a special article from the newspaper or wedding announcement you want to clip and add to your scrapbook?  Did you know that you can protect it from aging? Simply dissolve a milk of magnesia tablet in 1 liter club soda and refrigerate overnight. The next day, stir the mixture well, then soak your clipping in the solution for one hour. The combination will safely and gently deactivate the acids in the paper to prevent it from yellowing. Then blot the clipping between two paper towels and place on a screen to dry before adding it to your scrapbook.
