Unique Mosquito Repellants

Do you have any tricks that help repel mosquitos? Here are some interesting solutions for you this morning:

Bubble Machine

Silly, but it did prove effective. Again, soap might be the factor here. Bottom line: It works. 

Fabric Softener Sheets

Rubbed onto the skin, this method did leave us mosquito bite-free for the evening.

Dish Soap

A few squirts of dish soap, left in a saucer, did a nice job of keeping mosquitos occupied...and away from us. The results were comparable to citronella candle. Bottom line: This works. 

Eat Garlic

After eating a garlicky meal, we waited. The mosquitoes  stay away….

Mouthwash

When diluted with water and spritzed on the skin, this promised to rid of us mosquitoes for a full night. Sadly, it just made us smell minty fresh. We were still bitten at the end of the night. Bottom line: Does not work…. Listerine…

Anti-Mosquito App

This sonic repellant promises to rid your life of mosquitoes with a touch of a button. Easy, right? So we were disappointed when all this did was drain our iPhone's battery. Bottom line: Does not work.

Stuff NOT to buy at the dollar store

The Dollar Store is fantastic for many things, such as wrapping paper, notebook paper, party supplies and children's books. But you may want to be careful with some of the following. What will you NOT buy at the dollar store? 

  • Toys (could contain led based paint)
  • Foods (many come from unregulated countries, the quality could be lower)
  • Electrical cords (many found to be unsafe)
