Items Housed in Plastic Enclosures

Air Drying Procedures:

  • Remove plastic by slitting the side and carefully peeling back the top sheet at a sharp angle.
  • Blot surface with absorbent material if appropriate for that medium.
  • Spread items out to air dry.
  • When items are nearly dry, flip them over and peel back the plastic from the other sides. Place items between blotters or absorbent floor matting in stacks to reduce severe distortions during final drying.
