I think I may be losing it?? I live in South Africa and it is very hot and humid at the moment. Last night I sprayed myself against Mosquito bites with Spray on stick instead of the mozzi repellan

lol - human sticky mozzie trap (like those sticky papers heh). Man that stuff is hard to get off hoops & hands tho, hope it wasnt too painful removing it (and scraping off the stuck bugs lol).

40ÂșC here today - too hot for mozzies :) xXx

That's funny. But you're not alone in grabbing the wrong container! My mom once was in hurry to get to work & instead of hair spray, grabbed the foaming bathroom cleaner! Needless to say, we are still laughing.

Hopefully you are OK, now. We are laughing with you as we have all done something weird, whether Blond or not. Metholated spirits mixed with water in a spray is a good insect repellant too.
We are very lucky with our weather here at the moment ,36c, My office and home have reverse cycle air conditioning throughout, so I can work and sleep OK. Helen

Hope all is well today. Human "fly paper" is not the way to stop a mosquito.

Also from SA. Our mossies have not been too bad although it is hot, hot, hot here in Knysna. We have ceiling fans and I think that makes a huge difference as the mosies cannot settle. Sarah.

Hope you managed to get it off. How many Mossies were stuck to you?? Oh my , I also think I'm losing it sometimes, but have not done this yet. Thank goodness I keep my spray in my sewing room, and the Mosquito spray in the kitchen.

Hallo - I also live in South Africa - in Limpopo and we also have lots of mosquito. Put some vinegar in a little container and place it where you sit and work. The misquitos just dont like the smell and they dissappear. Sterkte !!

Vinegar on the bite is good instead of sratching and then I suppose the smell on your skin will keep them at bay for a while.

At least that would have made your hair nice and shiny.

It's been very humid in Melbourne as well with the warm weather and rain. Not yesterday or today though -it's cooled down again now. There was an email joke doing the rounds a while ago on a similar theme. A blonde joke, I think!

Sorry but this has made me laugh. The efect is probably similar but the mozzies will stick on and then you cn squash them...

Could be dangerous,some child died cos mom thought to rid the hair of lice.

joann13100 by joann13100 17 Jan 2011

The dose makes the poison. Alwaya read the directions on pesticides, not to over-do them. Pretty much all of them are toxic to humans, but we are bigger than mosquitos, so it just takes a lot more to get sick.

danababes by danababes 19 Jan 2011

I think she meant that she'd used Raid in her own hair by mistake, instead of hair spray .. not to actually try it lol xXx

That is too funny, believe me you are not the only person to make a mistake like this. I think everyone would have done something like that. Sue is right, it would stop them. hehehe.
