‘It works so well!’ Avoid mosquito bites during summer holidays with cheap accessory

Expert at Moretoornagising.com Kathryn Lord shared a hack to protect you and your loved ones from mosquitos when travelling abroad.

Kathryn recommended mosquito repellent bands, which are colourful bracelets that often use aromatic essential oils to keep mosquitoes at bay.

She explained: “Wearing a mosquito band got me and the little ones through summers in Italy.

“They last about three weeks and depending on the style you get; you can just pop a replacement tablet in the mesh.

“There are different sizes for children and adults and waterproof too.”
