This is a Great Product!...
I bought this Sawyer Bug Spray last year and I've been extremely happy with it. It's the first time I've ever had a Bug Spray that you put on your clothes, as opposed to putting on your Skin. I was skeptical at first as to whether it would really work, but I was very pleasantly surprised to say the least. The Manufacturer makes the claim that it will still be effective even after your clothes have not only been washed, but washed up to 6 times, so I was especially skeptical about that, but it really does work as claimed. I'm not sure about 6 washings, but it definitely does work after 2-3 washings, because I actually put it to the test in that regard a few different times. This is a very expensive product to buy when compared to other type Bug Repellents, especially when you consider that it's only a 6 ounce can, but due to the fact that it is still effective after you wash your clothes makes it well worth the higher cost. I recently went on a Camping trip for a weekend with 3 other people and we were in a heavily wooded area, and the Mosquitoes are extremely BAD this year (Yes, even worse than most years). I had this Sawyer Bug Spray on my clothes, but none of the others did, and we were all absolutely amazed at how much of a difference it made, as I was not bothered by the Mosquitoes nothing like they were, and they of course all had some other type of Bug Spray on. Needless to say, those 3 people are now true believers in this Sawyer Bug Spray equally as much as I am. Yes, you will detect a certain amount of Odor, but that's going to be the case with about any type Bug Spray tho, and you can Live with the Odor if it works good at keeping those Nasty Mosquitoes away. Very Highly Recommend this Bug Spray to anyone who spends a lot of time outdoors and especially if you are in heavily wooded areas!

Works great, only for clothing...
I love Sawyer Insect Repellant! I spray it on all of my clothes before hiking and it repels ticks really well. It also kills bed bugs and lice, so I always make sure to bring this smaller size bottle with me when I know that I'm going to be staying in a hotel or hostel to spray the sheets and pillowcases. In case the description is unclear: this is only for clothing. It will not work to repel bugs when sprayed on skin. Also, it will only last 6 weeks and 6 washes if it is hand washed: the agitation of a washing machine will wash this off your clothes faster than 6 washes. Overall, it's a great product and very worthwhile! The only disadvantage is that it has an unpleasant odor, but pretty much all insect repellant has an odor and you put up with it.
