I intend to place carton boxes of pu erh toongs on the shelves, what is the best way to remove the smell of the paints and would placing the boxes cause any damage to the teas long term?
Thanks for advice.
bad choice bro, better not put anything on it unless it has been exposed for many years.
i had to throw a tea cake out simply because i temporarily put it for two weeks on top of my harbeth speaker where they use a veneer instead of solid wood... the speaker is over 4 years old already and despite that, still got the veneer+binding agent smell..! tea is super good at absorbing smells. fortunately was a cheap cake so it didnt matter that much..
if veneer is like this.. paint could be worse
