Keep Mosquitoes Away with this DIY Spray

Yes, I'm dating myself with this one! 
Paul Harvey had a segment years ago, where he shared this spray recipe.
Over the years I think people have forgotten about it. 
So here it a reminder with photos on how to make it.

Only 3 ingredients needed:
Big bottle of BLUE cheap Mouthwash
3 cups of Epsom Salts
3 stale 12 oz. cans of cheap beer

Mix all 3 ingredients together until salt is dissolved.

Bottle of mouthwash

Epsom salts

stale beer

FYI, start with a large pitcher.
I had to switch - it's a lot of liquid! LOL

Stir until salts are dissolved

Pour into a spray bottle.

Makes quite a lot.
Spray anywhere you sit or hangout outside, it won't harm plants or flowers.
I spray it on my window screen from the inside out
 (so I don't get my windows dirty ;)
I spray the deck and walkways throughout the gardens.

It does make a huge difference.
Recently had the Little's here and spent a lot of time outside playing.
Happy to report no one received a bite.
