Good Question: How to Deal With Silverfish & Moths?

Here's a good question that buglady left on our Bay Leaves in the Pantry post:

I tried sticking bay leaves inside my kitchen cupboard doors to no avail - the mothy weevily critters seemed to love them. When I ran out of room in the fridge I decided to try decanting all my flour, rice, oats etc into juice bottles. I figured that if they were watertight moths couldn't get in. It's a bit fiddly with a funnel, but the results have been worth it ...

Now, silverfish (*#@!!~) & moths in my clothes are another matter. Any suggestions there?

We did post on silverfish once before -- but very few people had any successful tips to share. So, we thought we'd try again?

Has anyone found a good, nontoxic way to deal with silverfish and/or moths?
