2: Shake out the garment hard – it’s the eggs not the moth you should fear.

3: Then – if you can spare the item for three weeks – head for the freezer!

4: Clear a space – will you ever eat those runner beans, or half lasagne?

5: I know, I know, three weeks is a long time to lose a favourite sweater, but remember you may be saving its life!

6: Ideally

·      wash it

·      get it really dry

·      fold carefully and wrap in impenetrable plastic

7:  Shake out the item, air it, and rejoice! Your favourite garment is safe and ready to put on.
