Preserve Your Memories II Review by Lisa Barthuly

Precision Blue, LLC

As a homeschool family, we do a lot of projects, pictures, scrapbooking, and more. That requires paper, and if you want to hold on to some of these special things, it involves preservation. That can be a problem.

I have attempted (and am always sorely behind) to maintain scrapbooks for my children. I've tried every tape known to man to preserve their drawings, doodles, and pictures for them. And looking back now, much of it has already yellowed a bit. I can't go laminate everything; the expense and time involved there would be a nightmare. And home laminating machines can be very expensive.

Bring in Preserve Your Memories II--this is like having a laminating machine right in your home, only it comes in a can. It is easily used and really works!

I was pretty skeptical, but after using this product, I am sold. It has a UV blocker and is acid free, non-yellowing, environmentally friendly, and water repellent. It reduces fading and eliminates fingerprints, and you can write and erase on it! It protects against damage, dries in less than two minutes, and is made in the USA. Now, can you beat that? Preserve Your Memories II comes in an aerosol spray can and a finger pump can. It works on a variety of materials, including paper, vellum, plastics, copper, metals, marker, pencil and chalk art, newspaper, ink-jet photos, wood, and more.

This is a little miracle in a can for those of us who keep so many little "treasures" in portfolios or scrapbooks for our children! Two thumbs up!
