Dear John:

Do you have a product to remove grease spots from book covers?

Many thanks - G. Carswell

John replies:

Hi Carswell,

We suggest carefully using lacquer thinner (aka fingernail polish remover without additional solvents) to remove grease spots from the dust jacket - but be careful! We suggest you try cleaning a spot on a small portion of the corner of the jacket before applying.
