I use the peppermint Dr. Bronner's as a natural bug spray.

I swear it works!

If I find ants in the kitchen or something, I kill them and wash the area with Dr. B's and they don't come back.

I just squirt some on a sponge directly from the bottle, and wipe the area and rinse it well.

I have heard of people diluting it and putting it in a spray bottle and actually spraying with it, but I don't do that.

Thanks to Wendy for this Frugal Baby Tip!

    peppermint sounds like a lot safer to use than Deet sprays!
