Helpful Hints for Packing Away Your Summer Clothes


Strong smelling mothballs will repel moths; however, herbs will do the same thing and smell better.  Lavender, wormwood, cedar and patchouli along with a small amount of rosemary or cinnamon will work well.  Mix any combination and place in the toe of a used stocking.  Tie open end and hang in closet or place in a drawer. 

Moths do not eat wool – they eat the food stains and perspiration left on clothes or blankets.  Keep wool items clean and stored in sealed plastic bags or containers.
