Are you using the right detergent?

If you see holes appearing in items made of either wool or silk, it might not be moths to blame – it could be your detergent.

Biological powder, which contains enzymes, will attack wool and silk. It says on the box that you shouldn’t use it for those fabrics, but how many of us read detergent instructions?

Always wash those items in a gentle detergent specifically for delicate fabrics.
