Listerine Bug Repellent

A reader from Australia shares a bug-repellent recipe that uses Listerine.


| June/July 2014


We mix 2 tablespoons each of Listerine and dishwashing detergent with a liter of water.

We spray this treatment on a small wooden branch and place it on the table as a bug repellent; it keeps insects away from our food.
