    So I will be getting my first full uniform soon. I am wanting to display it on a mannequin but am afraid of those little creatures that destroy history. How do you with mannequins keep them from getting ruined?

    Hello Ray,
    If you choose not to use moth balls, you can use aromatic cedar balls. I am sure that there are other methods as well.

    Lavendar (spelling?) oil on cotton balls/pads. This can usually be found at pharmacies and in health stores.

    Where do you put them? In the pockets?

    I usually put the lavender oil on a cotton ball and put this in a tiny plastic bag and that in a pocket or on the hanger.

    Moth balls around the uniform and about in the room. Also i sometimes put some moth balls in a sock and pop it into a pocket.

    Hi all I have been looking into this for my Brocades, I am buying a glass display cabinet from Ikea and was thinking of some sort of moth protection, if I did the same with the lavender oil on a cotton ball and hid it behind one of the buckles would this have the same effect? Also if there are 4 compartments to the cabinet would one ball do the cabinet or would it need one in each compartment even though it is not airtight?

    Thanks

    A sprig of lavender in the pockets wouldn't go astray either or use Cloves, Thyme, Ginseng and Rosemary.
    Fill a sachet with one or a combination of these four herbs to keep moths at bay for months.
