Dry clean anything nice and woollen (cashmere, merino) etc. Then store them in vacuum sealed bags - you can get them from Robert Dyas/John Lewis etc- straight away.

You could also stick clothes in a plastic bag in the freezer for a couple of days to kill any remaining larvae.

Then Zero-in your carpets, curtains, inside wardrobes etc obsesseively for a while. It will likely take several goes to get them all. You need to spray inside wardrobes in case some are hiding in cracks etc.

Move furniture and spray carpets underneath them.

They do tend to return eventually so it is worth always storing nice woollen clothes in sealed bags.

Lavender, cedar etc just does not work for an infestation. It takes chemicals! But prevention is much easier than a cure so it is worth investing in good quality vaccuum sealed clothes bags.
