Preservatives Against The Ravages Of Moths

(Miscellaneous Receipts Relative ) - (The Most Valuable And Original Receipts)

Moths are very apt to eat woollen and fur garments early in the summer.

To keep them from the garments, take them late in the spring, when not

worn, and put them in a chest, with considerable camphor gum. Cedar

chips, or tobacco leaves, are also good for this purpose. When moths get

into garments, the best thing to destroy them is to hang the garments in

a closet, and make a strong smoke of tobacco leaves under them. In order

to do it, have a pan of live coals in the closet, and sprinkle on the

tobacco leaves.
