Moth Ball Odor

SCOE 10X can be used to eliminate moth ball odor. Use the following application instructions:

Before any moth ball odor treatment commences, remove all of the moth balls from the area to be treated. If any moth balls remain, the moth ball odor will return and the treatment will be temporary.

High pressure spray is the only application method we recommend for treating moth ball odor.

Airless paint spraying machines are the best choice for high pressure application. (airless paint sprayers can be rented at most tool rental centers) The long hose gives much greater freedom to move from room to room, while the high pressure produces a very small droplet which has better coverage and penetration. 413 or 513 spray tips are the recommended spray tips.

Application (dose) rates are estimated at 8,000 cubic feet of room area per gallon of diluted SCOE 10X.

Spray all surfaces (ceilings, walls, floors, etc.) where the moth ball  odor has settled. A light misting is usually enough.

For common sense personal safety, always wear a minimum of a paper mask and goggles or a full face respirator when high pressure spraying SCOE 10X.


Clothes that have minimal moth ball odor can be treated with a light misting of SCOE 10X. Clothes with heavy deposits of moth ball odor will need to be soaked in a container of SCOE 10X and then washed as normal.
