Mould on sticker sheet

Post by welshwookie » Sun Feb 03, 2019 8:56 pm

Hi after pulling out our star wars collection to catalogue, I have found mould on an unused sticker sheet.
Is there anything I can do, or should I just leave it alone?
Thanks Paul

Looks like an ISP-6? I'm afraid there's nothing that can be done to restore it. You could apply them as it looks like the stickers themselves are mostly undamaged. Or you could leave it alone.

I've just checked and found out I was mistaken. In which box did you find this?

You could try a small amount of lighter fluid applied to kitchen roll and try cleaning it off with that. The lighter fluid will evaporate but I would try it on a small are first and use a small amount.

Hi thanks for the replies it was a security scout sticker, and it was in the correct box after all.
perhaps i was a bit mad but i dabbed bleach with a small paint brush on the worse parts and it seems to have done the trick. As i didnt really want anything spreading to the box, or it getting worse if i put it in sealed plastic enverlope.
