Kevin Callan's "Bugs! Bugs! Bugs"
Posted by: old_user on May-24-06 11:15 AM (EST)
This article seems to me replete with unscientific observation. To say that Avon Skin-So-Soft "works almost as well as deet" might be Kevin's experience, but many other people--especially the scientists who tested it for the most recent issue of Consumer Reports--find it doesn't really work much at all. There are probably coincidental factors that make some Skin-So-Soft fans think that the stuff is a good repellent, when really something else explains why bugs stayed away that day. I'd recommend the Consumer Reports article over Kevin's ramblings.
