06/07/2005: About Them Pesky Mosquitos…
....Which we have LOADS of here in DHC:
Consumer Report's (CR) tests also compared Cutter Advanced with several deet products for odor, feel, and damage to different materials. The results found that Cutter Advanced had only a very faint aroma of corn chips, while deet products had a faint chemical odor. Only the deet-heavy repellents left skin feeling greasy. Deet damaged or stained plastic and leather.
CR suggests you should consider Cutter Advanced with picaridin, particularly if you need just a few hours of protection and if you don't like the odor or feel of repellents containing deet."
