What Houzz contributors are saying:
5. Store clean garments in airtight containersThoroughly clean your garments before putting them away in airtight containers for the season. Plastic bags should seal properly and storage containers should have tight-fitting lids. 6. Consider using mothballsMothballs contain paradichlorobenzene (PBD) and napthalene crystals that let off toxic vapours. However, for protecting items of high value, mothballs may be a good idea providing they’re used in airtight containers and you wash the items they’re stored with before using them.7. Don’t rely on cedar or lavenderWhile cedar oil can kill young larvae, it may not be effective with older ones, and although herbal oils (such as lavender) are touted as repellents, little is known about their effectiveness.
Help! I’ve run out of hanging spaceHaving two levels of rails is a great idea in a small robe, as it basically doubles your storage space. Use the upper rail for items you don’t wear often, such as special-occasion pieces. Position the lower rail at an accessible height, and hang your everyday clothing there.
