Works-for-me Wednesday – Chigger bites

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.

  2. Bounce brand works the best. Also works for mosquitos. You can also rub the dryer sheet on your clothes and skin.
