The terror attacks that I speak of are minimal in the grand scheme of things… but they’re destroying my wardrobe. And I like my wardrobe, so I’m taking it personally.
Moths, the little terrorists I’m apparently housing, are never seen but apparently active, and doing things which destroy my closet, dresser drawers, and shelves.
Bye-bye ruffled J.Crew henley, you were so nice to me:
I won’t turn them down completely, they’re still needed on active duty, but I needed something more powerful along with them.
Cedar boards. I lucked out by finding some 1″x2″ non-premium cedar boards at Home Depot for $3 each; I only brought home two, because I wasn’t exactly near where I lived and didn’t feel like hauling more more than I needed. Turns out I did need more, and having expecting them to be more readily available, but I’ve since been back to two other Home Depot stores with no luck. Anyways, I was able to make a big dent in my combatting efforts.
I cut them down to 28″ lengths (and 2 12″ lengths for the smaller IKEA drawers) and sanded them down with the power sander to make them a little smoother and less rugged (as I mentioned, they weren’t premium quality boards to begin with, but nice-smelling and just as hated by moths.
I’ll let you know how it goes before taking stronger measures. There’s much more cedar presence in there now so I’m optimistically anticipating success.
