Does anyone know what kind of store would carry acid free tissue for heirloom clothes storage? I checked with JoAnn Fabrics and Michaels; they don't carry it. The Container Store has acid free boxes including tissue in kits, but not the tissue alone. I can only find online stores that sell it, but I hate to pay almost as much as the tissue price in shipping costs.
There are several listing on Ebay for acid-free tissue with free shipping. I don't know how the prices are though -- I remember one listing saying 25 sheets for $10 something, free shipping.
Good luck with your search.
This is a good/cheap source for acid free packing paper.
Old and clean washed, 100 percent white cotton sheets can work very well too.
Have you checked on Amazon?

Yes, Amazon and other places have it, but shipping isn't free in the quantity I need. Thanks for the ebay idea, MyLife. Hadn't thought of that. I did find those free shipping vendors; may use them, but haven't decided for sure.
Conrad... Cotton/poly sheets won't work, eh? I have those, but no 100% cotton. What about new 100% cotton muslin from a fabric store, well-washed of its sizing? That might be the cheapest option yet, if it would be safe.
Sure cotton muslin could work, and as you mentioned, I would wash to remove any sizing/starch.
Restoration articles and books always mention 100 percent non-color-dyed cotton. One could probably use the white, cotton/poly blend sheets for wrapping/cushioning after initial wrapping with the 100 percent cotton?This message has been edited. Last edited by: conrad,
I bought some tissue and I think I bought it from Archivers store. See if they have one in your area. They sell scrapbooking stuff.
