Have you ever passed up a lovely piece because of the smell of mothballs? I always did until one day I fell in love with a garment and had to have it pong and all! Well I was told that the product 'Restoration' by Engleside is helpful in removing odors from vintage garments and although I had doubts because of the stubborn linger and cling on of the oils in moth balls, I gave it a try The item was a heavy wool blend coat..yeeks, I filled a bath with hot water and added a good amount of the 'restoration' powder..then after the water had cooled slightly I added the coat,determination was the key, knowing I would have one messy water drenched coat after. I repeated this procedure twice and after letting the coat dry naturally outside I could not beleive the smell had dissapeared!! since then I have used the product for moth ball odors and it worked again..I have more odor tips I will share, please ask if you need any .
