The best for storing clothes

published

Hovex camphor is the best insect repellant for storing clothes and in wardrobes. Also it's useful around paper, books magazines and laundry cupboards. I've been using it for years. I find the sachets more economical and convenient than the smaller plastic hangers. And it seems a waste to throw them out. The sachets are harder to find in stores.
Effective without the toxicity of napthalene
The bulk sachets are harder to find in stores.

They are strong in odour I only put one per wardrobe, try not to get them too close to the cloths as they will pick up the odour, i also check the packets as most of them only have half the amount of balls If she got sick wash her cloths that where in the wardrobe and air it out.

I've heard of bad reactions to the Napthalene balls more than camphor.
Camphor is a natural product but like all herbs it can used for particular health conditions and not good for the opposite type of conditions. Camphor is in common use so this type of reaction is not usual and most people are not adversely affected. It's a usual ingredient in the cold rubs to inhale and clear breathing.
A rule I use is : if the bugs don't like something it's worth checking as the bugs are acting on their natural instincts.
I use these a lot and camphor is good for me, it clears my head and thinking.
