Editorial Guidelines Updated on April 30, 2019 Share Tweet Pin Email Photo: RAYMOND HOM Sometimes you'll open your closet to find that moths have dined on your clothing, leaving holes in the fabric as their calling card. Mothballs are an effective way to prevent damage, but their distinct smell is unpleasant. However, certain herbs, such as lavender, tansy, and wormwood, not only are sweet smelling but also have moth-repellent properties. Combine these herbs in a sachet to put in closets or drawers; organza sachets are easy to make and are a lovely, practical holiday gift. What You'll Need Materials Charm Pack 5-inch fabric squares Sewing kit Moth-repelling lavender buds (thesage.com) Instructions To start, sew two squares together (because the edges come pinked, there's no need to trim), leaving a 1 1/2-inch opening on one side and a 1/2-inch seam allowance. Fill with moth-repelling lavender buds (thesage.com), and finish sewing the last side. Place in a drawer to keep linens fresh or under a pillow for sweet dreams.
