Works for Me Wednesday

It’s repeat week over at Rocks In My Dryer, and since I don’t have many to choose from, I thought I’d share a new one.  My daughter swells up terribly when she gets a mosquito bite.  If it bites her on the cheek, you can pretty much bet that her eyes are gonna swell shut.  I’m always looking for something safe to spray or rub on, but with all the concern about DEET in the past few years, I’ve been worried about the choices.  We’ve got a lot of standing water around here, so the little buggers will surely be swarming.  A friend of mine told me to put some Listerine in a spray bottle and spray it around the area of the yard we plan to be in.  I mentioned it to another friend, and she said she’s done it and it actually killed the little guys!  So, Listerine is a frugal mosquito spray.  Who woulda thought that?

  1. Interesting! Do you know if it has to be name brand Listerine?

  2. Wow! That is a great idea! Who would have thought?

  3. I’m not sure if it has to be brand name Simple. You could probably just check the ingredients and find similarities with the cheaper kind, or maybe get a coupon for the Listerine. I would think it would last a while.
