How to clean and store your books

You should ideally store your books in a conditioned space at room temperature.  If you put them in a basement or garage, the moisture in the air and the extreme heat can over time actually damage the books.

For the books you have stored on a bookshelf, take a dry microfiber cloth or even a soft vacuum cleaner attachment and dust off the tops of the books.  This will keep them from accumulating dust over time.  Here is a quick video from Expert Village on how to do this.
