Abstract : This patent application pertains to a method for facilitating the destruction of water-soluble paper which comprises wetting said paper with either a liquid having a maximum viscosity of 1000 cP and a water solubility from 0.5% to 8% or with a solution of a liquid having a maximum viscosity of 1000 cP and a water solubility of less than 0.5% and from 1 to 15 weight percent of an oil-soluble surfactant. Another method for facilitating the destruction of water-soluble paper comprises applying a thin coating of a solid anionic or nonionic surfactant having a hydrophile-lipophile balance number from 6 to 11 to the paper.
