mothballs-getting rid of the smell

Hi, I type this once but I lost it. So we will try again. I found some old fabric in footlocker with mothballs. It has a very strong smell. Any suggestions would be appreciate. Valerie

    Hi Valerie, I believe I once read that some dry cleaners have a special 'ozone' treatment for removing stubborn smells. I mothball a lot of fabrics, and find that washing, combined with a thorough airing out-of-doors --sometimes it takes a week!-- will usually get rid of the smell. Cea

      *If you should need moth-protection in the future, I discovered that moth balls are now made with cedar scent - infinitely preferable to the old, stinky ones.
