It is so beautiful and warm out today it reminds me that Summer is just around the corner and we will all begin spending more time outside, whether we're swimming, having picnics, barbecuing.
Coincidentally, I received this helpful tip which I would like to pass onto you to make those times outside more enjoyable.
It's from someone who was at a deck party awhile back, and the bugs were having a ball biting everyone. A man at the party sprayed the lawn and deck floor with Listerine, and the little demons disappeared.
The next year this person filled a 4-ounce spray bottle and used it around his seat whenever he saw mosquitoes. And voila! That worked as well.
It worked at a picnic where they sprayed the area around the food table, the children's swing area, and the standing water nearby.
During the summer, he doesn't leave home without it.....Pass it on.
Someone else tried this on their deck and around all of their doors. It worked - in fact, it killed the mosquitos instantly. They bought a bottle. It doesn't cost a lot. It also doesn't take much, and it is a big bottle, too; so it is not as expensive to use as the can of spray you buy that doesn't last 30 minutes.
The Listerine spray will last a couple of days. Don't spray directly on a wood door (like your front door), but spray around the frame. Spray around the window frames, and even inside the dog house.
WHAT A GREAT TIP! If you have any you'd like to share, send me an email and I will post it on this blog for all to see!
I think we can all agree that Listerine can make your place A BETTER SPACE.
