Building Materials: The Benefits of Bacon Board

When you have a blanket or garment that is meant to last as long as you do, storage plans can be a little tricky.   Keeping the moths, silverfish, and other elements away from your possessions is a constant battle, as those little boogers work hard to ruin your heirlooms.


Luckily, not all is lost!  The same nature that’s going to throw everything to destroy your clothes offers you a shield to protect them:  And the answer is Bacon Board!  Not to be confused with Western Red Cedar, Aromatic Cedar, also known as Juniper Cedar or Bacon Board, has oils within that repel all of clothes’ nemeses.  Lined within a hope chest or the inside of a closet, Bacon Board will keep your clothes fresh as well as provide a pleasant aroma.


One of the best qualities of Bacon Board is that it’s pretty, so you won’t need to cover it, like with SPF framing material.  As a matter of fact, it can be used as decoration within your house as well!

Further, when you're buying Aromatic Cedar, you're buying local, as the trees are indigenous to Central Texas.
