7. Use spices to keep woolen whole
Woolen clothing can last a lifetime—if you keep moths away. If you don’t have a cedar-lined chest or closet, preserve your cold-weather clothing using clove sachets. Purchase some small drawstrings muslin bags at a tea shop or health food store, and fill each one with a handful of whole cloves. To prevent any transfer of oils or colour to clothes and to contain any spills, put the sachet in a small plastic bag, but don’t seal it. Attach it to a hanger in your closet or tuck in on your sweater chest for woolens without holes.
