Casa Verde: Mothball Alernatives

A moth is one pest you don't want to invite into your closet. But, mothballs are party poopers, too. Mothballs slowly evaporate into gas, and if their two active ingredients, naphthalene and paradichlorobenzene, are inhaled, they can be harmful to your health. Luckily, there are alternatives that'll keep your sweaters and your health safe from harm. To hear them,

.

  • Cedar blocks or chips
  • Rosemary
  • Thyme
  • Dried cloves
  • Lavender
  • Cinnamon sticks
  • Eucalyptus
  • Bay leaves

Nearly all household ingredients! If you're going to use herbs as an alternative, make a sachet for them by filling a small canvas drawstring bag with a mix of ingredients. You can also add drops of essential oils of any of those herbs.
