We can agree that we all hate mosquitoes. These annoying flying insects are especially irritating in the summer and are probably one of the few things that can ruin your beautiful sunny day at the beach. The bites are even worse – they can itch like hell and there isn’t anything that can help. But, what if there is? We’re going to present a simple natural recipe that can be used both indoors and outdoors and involves burning coffee grounds.
Coffee grounds are present in any home, and even if you don’t have some, you can buy them for cheap. Besides being used to brew a nice cup of coffee, they can apparently repel mosquitoes as well. Put a handful of them in a bowl and cover it with aluminum foil, then leave the bowl in a dark and cool place. Once the grounds are dry, put them on a sheet of aluminum foil and light them up with a match. The powerful smell will bring a nice aroma to your home and will also keep the pests away.
If you’re hosting a party in your backyard, you can put this natural repellent in a few spots in your garden to keep mosquitoes away. Try the method yourself and we guarantee that you’ll be amazed by the results!
