|I wanted to let everyone know why I have chosen to write about homemade bug spray. I have very sensitive skin. So bugs naturally gravitate to me. When my husband and I are out by the pool, it is always me that get 10 bites before my husband gets one.|
I also don't like the harmful chemicals. Everyone reacts differently to the harsh chemicals, and because my skin is so sensitive, I often break out. So, I am on a quest to find all the homemade bug sprays I can, so I won't spend a fortune in bug sprays.
Two ideas that make sense to me: 1. If you find yourself without bug spray, use dryer sheets and rub the dryer sheet over all exposed skin. I have found that and it works.
2. Use Listerine or any antiseptic mouthwash. One part Listerine to three parts water. Put in a spray bottle and spray. The bugs are repelled by the smell.
