FAQ: Fabric Moths

Q: Hello Tracey,

Many thanks for your always informative newsletters. I trust you are keeping safe and well.

I have a question: would you possibly be able to recommend any specific essential oil/s that would help deter moths if placed in woollen clothes that have been packed up for the summer months?? I’ve noticed an abundance of moths recently and am concerned.

Thank you. Please continue to remain hopeful and positive.

Kind regards, B.Y.

A: The most effective moth deterrent is to wash your fabrics so they don't have body oils on them as food,
and to heat or sun dry the fabrics so the larva are killed.

Then you can use any cedar essential oil or smelly cedarwood to deter them in sealed bags.
