A natural and harmless formula that, unlike chemicals you can buy at the store, is 100% SAFE for children and animals.

Summertime is perfect for days in the garden, windows wide open at home, and late nights outside on the porch. Instead of battling all the bugs that threaten to ruin your peace and quiet, just try this simple formula that will keep them away and let you enjoy this beautiful season!

The Recipe

All you need is:

- 1/2 cup of shampoo
- 1/2 cup of olive oil *
- 1/2 cup of white vinegar
- 1 spray bottle

* This won't leave any traces of grease or oil on your furniture!

How To Use It

Mix all the ingredients together and pour them into a spray bottle. Then spray the anti-insect formula on all your outdoor furniture.

Repeat this procedure after any heavy rainstorms, which could wash it away and leave you vulnerable to bugs again.
