Yeah, I knew I should have counted to ten... or maybe ten thousand... upon reading and re-re-re-reading, I can see that you meant no ill will.

I'm better now. Thanks, John, for your remarks.

Sorry to say, but I think that when You can see the desease, also in a very early stage, it is probably too late.
Dessicant can help, but just before it starts. Afterwards you can try to remove internal humidity and acid with a bath in alcool, but in my experience I can't assure it works. Furthermore, If the specimen is internally damaged it can easily break up and disgregate.
