|1. Wash Feast Gear|
Pennsic well water and washtubs are good for on-site cleaning but you
really should do a thorough job before packing it all away.
Give all your plates, dishes, and feastware
a good scrub in a civilized kitchen sink or drop them
into the dishwasher for good measure. Remember that most wood products
should be hand washed because they might crack in the dishwasher.
|2. Develop Film Rolls|
Don't wait until Christmas to develop all the lovely photos you took
at the War. Film degrades (slowly) over time and you probably want to
have your pictures developed as soon as you can anyway.
|3. Mothball Your Woolens|
It's probably several more months before you'll need your woolen goods
again, so pack them away with moth crystals or cedarwood. I bring up
this point because I sheepishly have to admit that my woolens suffered
minor moth damage this year which I discovered only just before Pennsic.
So today I went to the lumber store and bought a pack of dirt cheap "Wood Shims"
made of white cedar and threw them in with my wool garb and capes.|
This year I'm also experimenting with cedar oil I purchased from the
Perfumed Dragon. A 1/4 oz. vial cost only $4 and they claimed it would
be strong enough to repel moths. Almost any form of cedar wood can be used
with your garb if you don't like the smell of moth crystals. Many stores
sell overpriced cedarwood chunks (shaped like balls or hearts) but for the
same price or less you can get a bulk bag of cedar shavings (used for
animal bedding and available at pet stores) or fresh cedar lumber.
|4. Pre-Register for Pennsic 31|
