Midge repellant that works?
fortunately I still have two old bottles of the Avon Skin-so-soft Woodland Fresh Dy Oil spray.
Since I shall be kipping next to a Brecon Beacon reservoir this weekend, Im very glad I do.

Avon no longer works as the ingredients have been changed because it was being sold as midge repellent in some outdoor shops, which it worked as, but was not intended as, and that had some licensing implications.
Dont think that’s quite right unkleH. The “green” bottle (Soft & Fresh range now) still has the citronella + other perfumes in which apparently works. They changed the name from Woodland Fresh.Posted 4 years agoNorthwindSubscriber
I’m told there’s 2 different versions of skin so soft, never see it myself though. I double bag it, skin so soft first with a spray of evil strength jungle formula on top- it doesn’t stop them all, only laminating yourself will do that IMO but it’s pretty effective.
With jungle formula, if you can still feel your lips, you didn’t use enough.Posted 4 years agowobbliscottMember
My brother used to swear by Marmite for all blood suckers. I’m talking about eating it, not smearing it on you. He had read somewhere that bloodsuckers don’t like high levels of Vitamin B Thiamine in your blood and they can smell it throug your skin, so when he was travelling he took a good supply with him and ate it every day and reckoned it worked, not 100%, he still got a few bites, but normally he’d have been eaten alive.Posted 4 years ago
