Some liquid (possibly juice) was in my bag for a week, which caused my textbook to get wet from the top. The pages are now dry but stuck together. Could anyone please explain how to separate the pages without damaging them?

  • This looks the method when the book is still wet. I do not think a dried book will do well in the microwave. – Willeke Feb 12 at 15:03

Steam. Hold your book over a boiling pot of water, so as the steam goes to where the pages are stuck. The less stuck pages separate themselves. Gently separate the pages if you can. Don't hold the book over the steam long enough to get it wet again. If the pages don't come apart hold the book over steam again. It took me almost 10 minutes to steam 296 pages. No damage was done to the book.

  • If you try this, be very wary of this creating mold. Books are notorious for acting as mold substrates, and trust me, most molds are not healthy to have around. – RockPaperLz- Mask it or Casket Feb 24 at 16:17
