Gently wash garment in a mild detergent.

Add a tablet of Efferdent to 1½ cups of hot water in a large, open plastic container Allow to cool slightly.

Place laundered garment in the solution.

Gently agitate with a wooden spoon. Soak for 15 minutes. Rinse with tepid water and equal parts of white vinegar. Soak for three to five minutes. The vinegar will neutralize the chlorine in the Efferdent. Roll garment loosely in a towel. Gently reshape garment and dry away from sunlight and heat.

Audio Materials

The field of audio materials has been developing and changing over the last 134 years since Thomas A. Edison developed his phonograph and cylinders to convey the spoken word and music. Edison invented the first machine that could record sound in 1877 using a tinfoil cylinder. In 1886,

Alexander Graham Bell obtained several patents for a commercial talking machine called a graphaphone. He replaced

Edison’s tinfoil with wax cylinders. By 1888, Edison had perfected his phonograph using a wax cylinder.

Some definitions of audio materials are in order. Audio records include 78s, 45s, and LPs (which are long-playing phonograph records designed to be played at 33 1/3 rpm).

CD is a compact disc that is a plastic-fabricated, circular medium for recording, storing, and playing back audio, video, and computer data. DVDs used to be known as digital video discs until they became more versatile, thus the name change to digital versatile discs.
