very dirty indeed

this large print was very degraded and brittle, partly from a previous treatment gone bad. when i washed it, a lot of junk came out...which you can see in the bath water. it's now much improved, but still soft and brittle, and i noticed it smelled like vinegar while drying. i don't know what happened to it exactly, but it was bleached in a bad way years ago.
