Now there's something I haven't thought about for years. When in SE Asia for uncle sugars follies we had wardrobes(being generous there) with a small bulb in it to prevent mold & mildew. In more than two year no one in the platoon had any problems with it.

In a smallish cabinet even a 71/2 Watt lamp would do.
