Spray the bugs away

Cleaning product
Keeping clean can save lives! Protect yourself against mosquitoes and make your own plant-based insect repellent. Suitable for ages 5 and over. 

Abram Games used his posters to encourage soldiers to keep clean and healthy. This was important to prevent the spread of disease and to help soldiers stay fighting fit during the Second World War. 

Protect yourself against mosquitoes and make your own plant-based insect repellent to keep those pesky bugs away.
