Ok, Ive gone and started to spray the drawers down with a 3:1 mixture of water and bleach. I let the bleach sit for a few minutes (pita since there is already rust) and then after I hose it down in my shower and scrub it with dish soap. Hopefully this will work.

I'm about to build a base and top for my oak flat files, and I'm planning on using cedar planks to cover the top of the base for just that reason (my house is a silverfish paradise of books, dark corners, records, more dark corners, piles of old paper... you get the idea). Figure I can sand it down a bit every year to keep the cedar refreshed and the pests away.

I didnt realize cedar was a pest deterrent. I always thought it was just for a fresh smell. Maybe when I finally rid this flat file of the musty smell Ill throw rotate some cedar or a baking soda boxes.

As another question, anyone see any detrimental and horrible things happening to prints as long as I rinse the bleach out after the soaking?
