I guess it makes sense, but after "product loss" is this.

Removing Pad Marks

It frequently happens when mouldings are too fresh, or shipped in hot weather that the pressure of the pads upon them takes off the shine. This is very easily rem­edied by dampening a piece of cheese cloth with a little alcohol, not too wet, and then rubbing the dull spot on the moulding. back and forth until it disappears. Care should be taken not to rub too long on the one place, as it may have a tendency to soften the polish and show the marks of the cheese cloth.

Thank you Marc for taking the time to do this. I'm saving all of these and when this is all over, I'm going to print them and have my own "vintage" framing book. :D
