Alternative To Using MothballsI pack many of my woolens in a cedar-lined hope chest. The rest of my stored clothing goes into the attic in plastic trash barrels with tight lids. I place 1 or 2 bars or scented soap, unwrapped, in each barrel and have never had a problem with moths or other insects.
Brass and Copper PolishIn a bowl, mix baking soda and enough lemon juice to make a paste. Apply to copper or brass objects. Wipe off and it will shine them like new.
