What you’ll need:
- Spray bottle
- White vinegar
- Eucalyptus, peppermint and cedarwood essential oils
Completely empty out your cupboard of all food or clothing (moths love to hide in crevices, so you have to leave no stone unturned!).
Mix equal parts water and vinegar in your spray bottle. Add about 15 drops of eucalyptus, 5 drops of peppermint, and 10 of cedarwood essential oils.
Simply, spray the solution on surfaces and wipe with a cloth.
How to prevent pantry moths
Now that you've ridden your cupboard of these pesky insects, lay down the ground rules and take some preventative measures. Ensure your food is stored in tightly sealed containers, lay out some bay leaves around the shelving (moths hate them!), and if you feel the need to, purchase a sticky pheromone moth trap from your nearest supermarket.
