Did you know..
..Mothballs often contain a compound called para-dichlorobenzene? The reason mothballs contain this compound is because it is very harmful to moths.. but, guess what? This carcinogen you are putting in your drawers with your clothing is also very harmful to you!
A safer way to keep pesky moths out of your favorite clothing items is to buy sachets with the scents of lavender and cedarwood. Moths steer clear of these scents and you'll be one step closer to making your home greener.
