The trouble with mothballs is that all your clothes smell of them. I had silverfish or moths eat one of my best jumpers last year. The love wool mostly, so I have smelly soap scattered around with cloves stuck in the soap. I also put all my woollen jumpers into a big zippered plastic bag. I was so mad when I saw that jumper last year, which was an expensive one.
Your poor jumper. And yes, I have just returned from Coles and I already smell like a nanna. I think I might hang the mothballs in with things that don't get worn very often and scatter the cloves around all my other stuff

Are the cloves in a sealed container though? They need to be open to the air to work. Even just scatter a few loosely in the cupboard and see if it makes a difference.
Ah, that could be my problem. I bought some cloves today as well and I am about to go and scatter them willy-nilly through the pantry
oh, my glamorous life
