Detox 26 Cloves for insect control

Cloves are the dried flower buds of tropical myrtles, used as spice — especially in deserts such as apple pies!

They are non-poisonous, sweet-smelling, readily available and inexpensive.  What is interesting about them  is that clothes moths find them totally unacceptable.  Silver fish are deterred by them too. 

I love the smell of cloves in my linen and clothes cupboards, and much prefer to use a natural product to a chemical deterrent.


About chemicalfreehome

My interest in chemical free living began in 1983 when I was accidentally soused in pesticide from an aircraft. I became seriously ill with life-threatening weight loss and severe pain; however, over a period of years I regained my health and gradually evolved a new lifestyle regarding the use of chemicals in our home. When I realised that other people were concerned about the effects of chemicals on health I decided to turn a negative into a positive and so wrote my best-selling book 'Chemical Free Home' published by Black Inc in Melbourne. I have been amazed by the response of all age groups, as everyone is affected by chemicals to some degree, and everyone benefits by reducing their use. In this blog I hope to suggest ways in which you too can create a healthier home environment.
