I guess chiggers, not to be mistaken for mosquitoes, love my mom. She can’t do any type of outdoor work without getting eaten up. Someone recently told her that wearing a dryer sheet will keep the chiggers away. So last week she worked outside (long enough to fill an entire big trash can full of weeds) with a dryer sheet tucked in the waistband of her pants. And guess what…no chigger bites. I wouldn’t wear a dryer sheet out in public but it’s worth a shot around the house.
It worked for her and I hope it will work for you too. Head over to Rocks in My Dryer for more tips.
