For Lyme & West Nile disease prevention, we often use bug repellent that comes in a spray can. We spray our clothes BEFORE we put them on! Works great. Spread or layer clothes outside on a suitable surface...spray front and back and all the neck/arm/waist openings. Kids are much happier doing it this way....so are the adults. No wiggling, no breathing vapors, or worry about eyes...more confidence that you did a quality job. Obviously, use spray intended for human clothing.

If you love to use dryer sheets in your laundry try keeping one in your pocket when you are outside, it helps keep mosquitoes away. Also if you have nats in your kitchen keep a couple out and the nats disappear. Also use a used dryer sheet in your hair to help eliminate static in your hair! I also put them in my boyfriends stinky shoes to help keep the stink away... My grandma shared these with me and I love all these tips!!
