PROTECT YOUR CLOSET

Moths are annoying. Don’t let moths ruin your clothes. Act now!

My mom used to buy large blue moth repellent garment bags from the dry cleaners each year when it was time to put away her wool. The dry cleaners in our area no longer carry those wonderful blue bags so now we have to get creative.

Here is how I do it: I place my wool pants, skirts and sweaters in bins and my wool dresses and coats go in the bags.

Step 1: Clothes Bags and Bins
Store wool coats and dresses in garment bags to help keep the moths from feasting. Moths and their larvae can get into small spaces, so this is not a sure fire way to keep them out, but it can help!

I bought 3 of these clothes bags on Amazon for $6.83 each.

Step 2: Cedar
Red cedar is a natural moth repellant, but it only helps so long as it retains its odor. Change these out periodically to help keep moths out of your closet.

You don’t have to break the bank to make sure your clothes are protected. Don’t wait until it’s too late!
