When I was talking about Judith's class I forgot to mention these few tips that she told that I thought would be of general interest. Silly me!
-Apparently freezing moth eggs makes them 30% more viable but it will kill any that have progressed onto the creepy, crawly stage. So beware if you have a moth problem and the only thing you do is put it in the freezer.
-Putting things in the microwave only burst the moth eggs if they have enough moisture in them.
-She recommends plastic bins or pales with snap on lids over cardboard and brown paper bags because the cardboard and bags have been dyed to be uniformly brown and the dye has a smell that attracts moths.
-Her preferred method for storing a fleece (washed or unwashed) is to stuff it into a plastic pale that has a snap on lid. The idea is to try and get as much air out of it as possible.
-Also, when she combs she spritzes water with a little mint or lavender oil mixed in it on the fleece. This helps control the static electricity and helps to prevent moth issues.
There were so many more nuggets of wisdom she passed along but these are what I can come up with off the top of my head. If I think of any more I'll be sure to share them. Also, if you ever get a chance to take a class with Judith, do so, even if it is on boiling water. You are sure to learn something.
