Spices as an Alternative to Mothballs

contest winner icon
When most of our belongings went into storage for 12 months, I used peppercorns and cloves (wrapped together in muslin) in all clothing containers, and bay leaves in all my book boxes. Never had a problem and everything smelt nice when I unpacked. A few bay leaves in the back of each shelf in the book cases keeps any pest away.

Can't abide the smell of mothballs and would never use them. They smell evil.
