Maybe it is because we live in a time where our clothes are mostly made of cotton and synthetic materials and it is not so common for us to wear woolen underwear?
Or maybe no one likes the smell we remember from rummaging through our grandmother's closets...
Maybe more people have cedar closets or at least found that it was better to have "cedar balls" as an alternative.
Maybe there was a moth plague in the mid-century that I was unaware of...maybe that plague was the idea for the illusive MOTH MAN!!!!!!!
Nonetheless there are a lot of vintage ads for moth balls...
These are from the May 1952 issue of Good Housekeeping
This one is so strong you can't even buy it at the local 5 & 10 or hardware store, you have to get it from your druggist!
