How mud packing of Taj Mahal is done

How mud packing of Taj Mahal is done?  

The Archaeological Survey of India is again planning to do the mud facial of the Taj Mahal with the help of Fuller Earth. The clay is applied in the form of a thick paste that absorbs the grime, grease and bird droppings on the marble. They have to maintain the Ph level as the semi-liquid mud paste to be applied on structure should neither be too acidic not too alkaline. This mud cover is later covered with a polythene sheet to ensure that absorption takes place properly. Once the mud pack flakes off, the structure is then washed with distilled water.
