Newbie here and to scrapbooking. I just started my first layout last night.

I'm wondering what kind of deacidifying sprays people use.

Is there a certain brand or type that is better than another?

Are there any helpful hints for using the spray?

Thanks!

I think you are talking about a spray called
"Archival Mist"... there might be others but I don't know them

I would shop around for the best price, but also there might be some shops in your area that carry it. M's used to and Jo's might as well.

You only have to use it on things that you know are not acid free. For example, newspaper clippings, memorabilia, etc...

I haven't used any.

For the most part, I typically use "archival safe" materials in my scrapbooks.

Personally, I think they are extremely expensive, and there is really no guarantee that they work. The product is relatively new, so there is no way to tell if they will actually preserve anything for 50 years.

If you do buy, wait until you can use a 50% coupon at M's.
