Natural Way To Keep Your Clothes in Storage Fresh and Bug Free

Snowstorms in October on the East Coast. Unusually warm weather in the Mid-West. Despite the strange, unseasonable weather across the nation some things are necessary – like changing your summer clothing for warmer pants, sweaters, etc. because cooler weather will inevitably arrive. If you are like me who has limited space, you need to store away one season of clothes while you swap clothes for the current season.

A great chemical-free alternative to mothballs and the like is to soak a few cotton balls or cotton squares in pure lavender essential oil and wrap them in cheesecloth. Put a few of these satchels in each box of clothes before storing. The scent repels pesty bugs and it keeps your clothes smelling like a spring garden!

What tips do you have for storing clothes for the winter?
