Hi friends! I’ve been wanting to do this series for a long time. You guys send me a lot of great questions, which I usually sit down to answer one by one – but we all share so much in common, I thought, why not get the answers out there to everyone?! So, that’s what Q&A Green Thursday is about. I pick a question, look at the solutions that I use myself – and share them with you! And if I don’t have the answer or haven’t figured out the best solutions yet, I’ll go to my experts and friends in the field and get the answer to you. That way we all learn together! Sounds good?!
So, this question comes from a reader, Pooja:
I know you guys are not the type to use nauseating and toxic mothballs, so here’s how I’ve tackled pests in my closet, in a natural and safe way. I live in a humid country, so I’m dealing with moths, mosquitos and mold!
First, a question: Is your closet jam packed with clothing and linens? Some you haven’t worn or even touched in over a year? It can get to the point where you can’t even move the hangers to see what you have anymore. If that’s your closet – it’s time to rid yourself of this. Set your old clothing free, they can serve someone else better! Not only will you feel lighter and happier in this space, but when it comes to moths and pests – clutter is like an open invitation.
I remind myself of this when I’m out shopping. Trinkets, shiny things, bulk bins and sales are oh, so tempting – and it’s far to easy to end up with a bunch of stuff that you don’t need or never really wanted…
Once your closet is put back together, you’re feeling really good and want to keep it that way! For all those little moths that don’t get the message – make this DIY Moth Ball – it’s beautiful to us, but completely uninvited to them!
Tell me about you! Have you found moths fluttering around in your closet? Do you have a techniques for keeping them out – share it with us in the comments below! And – if you have a green question, send it my way – I’ll pick one to cover for the next Q&A Green Thursday! This is so fun! I hope you think so too! Now, go into your closet and make it happy, healthy and green!
