What is the difference between buffered and unbuffered paper? I'm looking for a "satin" version of this to wrap and store individual Christmas Tree ornaments. Would a buffered or unbuffered tissue be appropriate?
Know the answer?

Unbuffered tissue is pH neutral, and works well for storing most items including photographs and documents. Buffered tissue has an alkaline composition achieved by adding calcium carbonate. Buffered tissue will also work for photos but if you are preserving textiles, it is better to use buffered tissue for natural plant derived fibers and un-buffered tissue for animal fibers.
