Martha Stewart Living, January 2009

Wool scarves and mittens are ready to wear from one season to the next when wrapped in acid-free tissue paper and slipped into labeled craft boxes (available at organizing stores). The boxes are then stowed inside shallow drawers.

    I have purchased acid-free tissue paper at an Art Supply store. A BIG reminder, wash the items before storing them, it will provide any surprises when they are taken out of storage!

    Cedar spray is available in the closet section of Wal-Mart. I bought some for pot pourri because I love the smell. I have tried sanding the cedar hearts and have not had any success with renewing the scent. The spray is fantastic.....a 4 oz. bottle was around $6.

    Herbal products like Moth Away are good alternatives, along with scented cedar products ( renew the cedar scents with a sand paper rub or spraying with cedar oils). Also NO Moth brand products...Insects dislike these smells and stay away.
    Look for products like these @ the container store, local hardware stores and probably superstores like Meiir, Target or Walmart.

    Is there a reason for the tissue? Can they not be stored in the boxes alone?
