Opt for camphor

Insects find their way through the smallest of corners and easily creep into your cupboard during the monsoons. Camphor balls absorb moisture and will ensure that there’s no room for insects in your wardrobe. This will help keep your clothes clean during the wet season.

No damp clothes in cupboard

There are times when we’re rather lazy and happen to keep our semi-wet clothes in the cupboard little realising that this can spell doom for not just them but other garments too!
