Parakito Mosquito Repellant for the Whole Family

The deadliest insect on earth is the mosquito. The mosquito just by itself is not harmful, but as a disease carrier, it is deadly. Did you know that only the females bite? The males don’t need to bite because they don’t produce “little skeeters” and are much more interested in flowers than in humans. And did you know that mosquitos can detect carbon dioxide from 75 ft away? Geez!

Parakito Mosquito Repellant is an all natural essential oil repellant that will mask the scent of your breath and body making it hard for a mosquito to find you. It is your personal space repellant made from made from citronella, rosemary, geranium, mint, clove, peppermint, and cinnamon oils. Parakito comes in a refillable band that you can wear around the wrist or ankle, or a clip that you can attach to backpacks, strollers, belt loop or purse. They are attractive enough to get your grandkids to wear and inconspicuous enough for your spouse to wear. There is also a roll- on that you can apply directly to body or face. I know you are asking, why Parakito? Parakito is made in France, and the essential oil is a higher quality than other essential oils. It’s patented slow release oil that is Deet free and safe for the whole family. It’s water proof, refillable, has a comfortable hook and loop closure, and at night you can just put it by the bed for a pest free night.

Parakito is easy to pack for vacation, so whether you are hiking in Colorado, fishing at Rockport or surfing in Hawaii (I wish), you can have Parakito camouflage you from dive bombing mosquitoes! Hope you are having a great summer!

Question: I have a rug on terrazzo tile in my entry hall. A couple of my friends have almost slipped on that rug when they walk in. Is there anything that I can put down that would not end up leaving a residue on my pretty terrazzo?

Answer: Ruggies keeps rugs in place on all types of flooring including terrazzo. Just press them onto the back of your rug, and it will stay put. Ruggies have a tacky grip polymer technology that will grip the rug while hundreds of suction pockets grip the floor. They are also reusable. You just wash with soap and water to renew the grippers.

For home owners that like to put decorative rugs on top of the carpeting, Lok-Lift makes Rug Gripper that is safe on all surfaces including carpet.

Question: The other day I was at a grocery store and another car must have rubbed against my car. The incident left a paint mark on my car. There is no real damage but the mark is red, and my car is white. Can you suggest something that would remove the red smudge, but not damage the paint on my car?

Answer: Lift Off makes Graffiti Remover that is water based and biodegradable. What is unique about Lift Off is that it breaks the molecular bond between paint and the surface. Spray your stain, (work in the shade) let work for 60 seconds and then just wipe off the red smudge. Rinse the area completely with clear water.
