For a few years now there has been something making holes in my t-shirts. The internet is alive with theories about what causes this.
The holes have been attributed to marble bench tops (which I don’t have), the button on your jeans, the seatbelt and occasionally someone will say it’s a bug/moth/silverfish etc.
Well, I thought it was a bug of some description and I have emptied drawers and sprayed with surface spray and that seemed to solve the problem for the time being. But , they’re back. I pulled a t shirt out of the drawer this week and it had a hole in the front. I was disappointed because I bought it in Hawaii in March and haven’t really worn it yet. (winter in Australia)
So I emptied the drawer and changed the paper and sprayed again. I know there are people that don’t use poisons in their house but nothing natural will kill these little blighters. Not cedar blocks or essential oils, nothing. I leave the clothes out for a few hours before putting them back but I am not going to lose any more shirts to these buggers. This is what the dead one looked like:
It had a hard ridged shell like a dinosaur but the underside was white and moth like. I don’t know what it is but I know that it’s the culprit. Not bench tops or seatbelt or jeans.
