Finally! The much waited Don’t Bite Me! Patch arrived at our doorstep and I quickly read through the literature (which was quite an interesting read). It is completely kid-safe and does not contain any DEET or toxins! Isn’t that amazing? For the whole of my adult life, whenever I comb the chemist’s aisles for a mosquito repellent, it would always always contains DEET. The Don’t Bite Me! Patch contains only natural ingredients, and that’s why it’s safe for kids. Not only that, it was purported to be waterproof!
Is that amazing or what? But does it work?
Here’s the crunch. Yes! My kids and I love the outdoors. Well, mostly my kids. I just tag along. Kids + Outdoors = Bites. Trust me. All the time. So, I slapped on one patch each on each kid…and went out for a very long and tiring play, in one of our wonderful reserves.
I got home, wondering if they would be scratching their itch, but I could not find a single bite on them. Now..that is fantastic!
