Product Description

Product Description

For an alternative to using old-fashioned smelly moth balls, use Zero In’s Cedarwood Balls to repel adult moths and their larvae from your clothes. Made from 100% natural Eastern Aromatic Red Cedar, which has been trusted to freshen and protect clothes for centuries, the long lasting fragrance will penetrate garments and fabrics, repel moths and prevent the build up of mildew and musty smells from where clothes are stored. A completely natural treatment – no dangerous chemicals means they are safe to use around children and pets. These balls can be placed in drawers and cupboards where clothes are stored and if the aroma begins to weaken simply refresh by rubbing with a fine grain of sandpaper or use Zero In’s Refresher Spray (product code: ZER039, sold separately).
For best results, ensure your clothes are always thoroughly clean and dry before storing. Refresh or replace every 6-12 months.
Does this product kill the moths? No this is a repellent product. Moths do not like the scent and so are less likely to destroy fabrics in the vicinity.How does it work? Moths are repelled by the scent of the cedarwood balls and therefore will not go near where the product is placed.Will the scent of the wood damage my clothes? For use with delicate or white clothing, insert a layer of toilet tissue around the product to prevent prolonged contact and eliminate possible marks.How do I use it? Put the cedarwood balls in pockets of clothes and between layers of garments. Place in drawers and corners of wardrobes.How many should I use per item of clothing? Place one cedar ball in the pocket of each stored garment where hanging, or between alternate layers of clothing where folded.Will these fragrance my clothes? The fragrance should not be strong enough to fragrance your clothes.

Box Contains

24 x Cedarwood Balls

5.0 out of 5 stars Goodness gracious, great balls of. . .cedar! 4 May 2012
By KM #1 HALL OF FAME TOP 10 REVIEWER
Item Package Quantity:1|Verified Purchase
"You shake my clothes and you rattle my rails" okay I'll stop!

I bought these for my Dad as he was telling me he had quite a few moths suddenly appear in the house. I at first thought that my brother had opened his wallet but there were far too few moths for that to have happened.

Upon arrival in their nifty little box there were indeed 24 marble (or olly oop north!) sized Cedarwood balls. The scent is pretty intense in a good way. They smell quite nice! If this drives moths away, all the better. You are advised that if the scent of the balls diminishes you should lightly sand the top layer off (Oof!) using a fine sandpaper or emery board or something to rejuvinate them.

Some moth-y info incase you didn't know. . . .

-The moths themselves are not the problem, rather it is their larvae who eat the fabric when they hatch. The life cycle of a moth is 21 days, so if you shake your clothes outside mothly there's a good chance you'll get rid of them!

-Never put clothes away dirty. Sweat, hair oil and food stains attract moths. This will reduce the chances of moths being attracted to your clothes.

-Moths hate light and being disturbed. Shaking at your clothes once a month or them out in the sun should deter them.
-A hot wash will kill moths. If you cannot wash the item, place it in a plastic bag and put it in the freezer. This will also do the job.

-Mothballs will work better as a deterrent in an air tight environment.

Anyway. . . He's placed them around the house on window ledges and in places where moths lurk. So I will report back in a few weeks with good results hopefully and upgrade my star rating.

Happy moth hunting!

5.0 out of 5 stars Cedar Balls Excellent Value 2 Aug 2009
Item Package Quantity:1
I am very happy with the cedar balls. I spent at least three hours online looking at cedar products that were exactly the same or similar for three and four times the price. So to get them at such a great price and free delivery! Excellent value for money. I received them very quickly, too. I will be a return customer for this company. Thank you!!

As the previous reviewer has stated already after much research checking prices I was amazed at how cheap this seller was offering the product. You won't even find them any cheaper on Ebay, if you do then there making the money back on the P+P.

4.0 out of 5 stars More effective that I expected ... 27 May 2010
Item Package Quantity:1
The cedar balls arrived promptly and although I had little faith that they would be effective, they seem to have chased the moths away from the places where I have left them. Having a small baby in the house I really wanted to find a natural product for use in his bedroom so these have been great. I'm aware that the moths have probably just found somewhere else to call home instead.

We have used a variety of products including the Rentokil strips in our wardrobes which have worked really well, Lavender also seems to work, the sticky traps were of some value, but one of the best treatments has been lots of really thorough vaccuming and shaking out clothes rather than leaving them undisturbed for too long - all very time consuming but we've reduced our problem down to only the occassional moth rather than having to squish 20 a day!

5.0 out of 5 stars They Work 12 Jun 2013
Item Package Quantity:1|Verified Purchase
I like em but the moths don't. They disappeared for several months, regrouped and returned. Have used a few more and had the same effect.... They've gone again. Cat likes them also. A bit annoying at 3am when she's chasing them across the wooden floor!!!
