I bought these Cedar Balls on Amazon to protect my cashmere and woollen clothes from the moth larvae that can make a meal of wool and cashmere clothes leaving them riddled with holes and therefore unwearable. Other products I have found designed to keep the larvae away, like moth balls, have a very nasty smell which I don't want anywhere near where I store my clothes!
The use of cedar wood balls and rings dispersed amongst my stored clothing seems to be a very easy and simple practice. The Stv STV031 Cedar Balls, Box of 24
cedar balls I have recently bought seems quite adequate for a couple of drawers.
Let's hope they work! I do like their cedar smell - unlike the moths and their larvae!
Cedar wood is the old-fashioned remedy to look after woollens, often with clothe storage drawers being lined with cedar wood. It is also important to wash ones woollens before storing as any specks of food on the woollens add to the banquet for the larvae!
I am advised that all one needs to do to rejuvenate the balls for the next season is to just lightly 'sand' the balls with something like a nail file and let the new surface on the balls produce their delightful smell again.
The manufacturers recommend a cedar smelling aerosol spray for this purpose.
