Miss Cora Lee Coleinnn, North Mississippi County Home Demonstration Agent, has described some preventive measures to protect garments, One of (he first steps Is cleaning garments by washing or dry cleaning, which will destroy eggs or worms. The garments should ;hen be slorcci at once before fresh eggs can 1* de|x>sitcd on them. Garments or bedding not soiled should be sunned and brushed thoroughly to remove any eggs or worms. Pressing under a damp clolh will also kill any Insects in the garment. "If a trunk or chest 1ms had moths in it, (umlenlc it lor :I6 hours With carbon disulflrtc, commonly called high life," (he agent said. "Be sure to keep it iiwny from fire. Three tablespoons of carton cllsul- fltie Is enough to fumigate an average trunk." ^ Garments can safely bo stored in paper tags, If every hole is completely sealed. Garments wrinkle less wlien left hanging. If garments arc stored hi tight trunks with nariuUclilorobi'iiKonc.
