Anyone else have family members who are addicted to mothballs?
My dad gave us some nice furniture and many beautiful hand knit wool sweaters (the wool came from his own sheep) but everything absolutely reaks of mothballs. He must have boxes of mothballs in every drawer, closet and trashcan. The smell is overwhelming.
My first thought was to put everything out in the sun, when the sun decides to shine again, but I don't know that sunshine alone will rid me of the smell.
Any thoughts? I am scared to machine wash the sweaters as I have had bad luck in the past with weird wool shrinkage.
