Learning From History Up date

The posts for “Learning From History” sort of got side-lined when life just got too busy to type up a post and learn.

The closet did get sorted and organized.  Everything seems to be working well.  I just need to get a couple more containers for items.

For moth control, there is a combination of lavender and cedar.  In fact, my dad noticed some of his wool dress pants had holes in them (probably from moths) so they joined in with my “moth control” kick.  As of now, there is grated lavender soap (a suggestion I found on the Olive + S blog), a solid lavender air freshener, cedar blocks and an open box of bounce.  I haven’t noticed any problems with my closet.

As for mending, the darning mushroom won out over the darning egg.  I am still not the best but I at least am putting forth effort to try.

As to mending, Closet Case Patterns has a couple of blog post on mending.

  1. Oooh! Thanks for the lavender and cedar tip! We sometimes get moths in our apartment and I’m always nervous that they’ll destroy our clothes, but I didn’t want to deal with the smell of moth balls, this sounds perfect and much more healthy and natural!

      • I bet! I’ve never used them, but I remember the smell from my grandmother’s closet, playing hide and seek as a child, ugh, just sick-making! It’s no surprise that they’re not healthy for humans and are dangerous for animals!
