First thing to do is put both jackets and every woollen through the deep freeze in a bin bag for 48 hours.
This will not only kill any bugs but will also destroy any lurking eggs.
Won't hurt the family or the Highwayman either
If you've got anything dear to you that's so far uninfested I'd store it in an air tight bag after defrosting until the house gets an all clear
Sterling advice Ken.
lookalike I need to go out and buy. very large freezer! (there's no way I could get my jackets in our current one)
You could always take the drawers out of the freezer to make more room
LOL. It might work I suppose but then where would I put all the stuff now that I normally have in the freezer?
We'll all be over for dinner!
How's 7:00pm Wednesday Sound?
Bring a bottle!
We keep a deep freezer in the basement at Aero to freeze any incoming vintage that has even a hint of wildlife about it.
Anyone with a collection of vintage clothing or who buys regularly on ebay, vintage shops, might consider investing in a second hand chest freezer and stick it in the back of the garage, there are a couple on Gumtree right now for £40 a piece. Two or three nips in an otherwise good Irvin would drop it's value by a lot more than that.
Two for £20, a bit of a hike to Golspie to collect them but .....................................
great idea Ken- if you have got a garage
bit of. trek from here indeed
