Sadly my lovely new vintage Pilot in clear and purple celluloid has developed a distinctly acidic smell in the cap, which is lingering a touch on the barrel. Is there any immediate treatment I can do to stop the positive reinforcement cycle of degredation+acid? How about longer term? My plan at the moment: gentle soap and water, clean and isolate cap from everything else celluloid in darkness with ventilation. I am also going to order some of those absorptive archival papers.

Is there anything that can be done to hard rubber to protect it from more wear than it has already experienced but won't harm the rubber over time? I just happened to think of this while having difficulty making out a couple areas of imprint on the butt of a hard rubber pen. I am very careful with my pens and it is not like I will be rubbing the area but would like to see if something can be done to protect it.
