Bug Sprays – that DON’T STINK!!


It’s that time of year again! Camping, swimming, hanging out on the beach. Who doesn’t love sitting by the pool and laying out – or sitting by the fire after a day of camping – and roasting marshmallows? We all love it, no? You know what I DON’T LOVE? Dealing with mosquito’s! Seems like mosquito’s and camping go hand in hand. Each year as I’m packing for my trips I have to stock up on bug spray, and I hate freaking bug spray. It smells awful, feels awful, and I find it a necessary evil. Don’t we all?

You know I swear Oregon has kamikaze mosquito’s that will bite THROUGH your clothes.

Anyway, this summer there’s no need to suffer! I’ll be stocking up on these bad boys as soon as I get off here! Several companies have come out with good, clean smelling bug sprays! Where have you been all my life!

Such a great idea to mix it with perfume to kill that horrible smell bug sprays have.
