Mosquito repellants

June 11, 2004 | Comments Off on Mosquito repellants

I just received one of those “junk” emails with suggestions for mosquito repellants, and it got me thinking…travel writers, of all people, should know how to keep mosquitoes away. Do any of you recommend these or other products/techniques:

Avon Skin-So-Soft bath oil mixed about half and half with alcohol
Bounce Fabric Softener Sheets
Vanilla that is sold in Mexico (natural, pure)
Vitimin B-1 (Thiamine Hydrochloride) 100 mg./day
Vick’s Vaporub

Also, avoid eating bananas.
