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.

Car Sharing

Would you rent your car to a stranger? A new popular trend is peer-to-peer car sharing services.  They allow you to rent your car out to strangers and defray your ownership costs.    These services are already being offered in New York, California's Bay Area, Portland, Oregon and Austin, Texas, and you have the final say of who gets to rent.  Neil St. Clair of New York rents out his BMW 5 at $75 a day and made $700 last month!
