What is the best way to clean the inside of an old/antique wooden wardrobe?

I have an old wardrobe which was given to my grandma as a wedding present and then she left it to me. I like it and I have been using it for a few years but recently it smells a bit musty or dusty, and I am also worried about moths. What would be the best way to freshen it up?
It is oak.

Answer:

I am assuming you have dusted it so what I would do is to put in either some cedar chips which would also prevent moths from getting in; (the reason for cedar chests was to keep the moths out!); if you want something other than the smell of cedar you might try putting in a sachet of lavender, or whatever scent you like. Even an old perfume jar will "scent" the air! good luck!
