does anyone know of a substitute for p-dichlorobenzene.  We have a local
"large" company here that uses it as a primary ingredient for
manufacturing their bathroom and toilet sanitizer product.  We are all
familiar with it without even realizing it...it's that mothball-smelling
product when you enter a restroom and it is usually on a mounting stick
inside the toilet.  You can still purchase it at the grocery store.

p-dichlorobenzene is a suspected carcinogen, and if this company
changes, it basically will be changing its entire product...

Thanks for your assistance...
