Use One Secret Ingredient To Keep Moths Out Of The Kitchen
Moths can be annoying pests and destructive to your kitchen items, but luckily, there is an easy way to ward off these unwanted guests with the help of ammonia.
First, inspect all dry food items in your pantry or kitchen cabinets for signs of moths, like holes in food packaging or silky webbing, then throw away all contaminated food items.
Next, attach the crevice tool to your vacuum and thoroughly suck up any residual crumbs, webs, or debris left on shelves, making sure to clean all corners.
Afterward, mix ½ cup of ammonia with 1 quart of water in a bucket or large container. Put on rubber gloves to prevent any irritation before soaking a clean cloth in the solution.
Once the cloth is fully saturated, use it to meticulously wash all exposed pantry surfaces and any kitchen drawers or cabinets near the affected areas.
You may also want to make a new batch of the solution for the cabinet and pantry doors. Finally, keep all drawers and cabinets open until they have dried completely.
