When I was growing up there was a distinct odor that came for the closets of my nana’s house.
Theirs was a generation that lived and died for these little round balls of camphor. You did not think of putting your off season clothing away without surrounding them with moth balls.
I wonder about the moth ball market and if it is shrinking now that the women of my nana’s generation have passed on. Are there younger people who hang onto the practice of using them? I am pretty sure I have never seen them in use again since nana’s house.
Honestly, anyone out there see them other than granny’s closet?
