A great tip for bug bites:
Dab hydrogen peroxide 3% solution directly to the bite site on skin (do not apply near the eyes). It takes a few minutes for the itchiness and discomfort to resolve, but does not reduce the redness from the bite on skin.

hydrogen peroxide (5%) is quickly becoming the disinfectant of choice for hospitals. Health authorities across north america are changing their standardization policies for c-diff and other sporicidal applications, moving away from bleach-based products.

Also, vinegar is a great cleaner and deodorizer, but it is not an effective disinfectant (5% supermarket variety). Always remember to disinfect food prep surfaces :up:

Tree sap can easily be removed from clothing with rubbing alcohol. Simply rub onto the affected area(s) to remove tree sap from clothing. Then place the item(s) in the washing machine (with detergent) and wash as usual in warm water. Do not add other items to the wash. Hand sanitizer also works.

Believe it or not, you can easily remove tree sap from clothing by using a well-known bug repellent too. Spray on Deep Woods Off bug repellent and then wash out. This household item is also great for removing tree sap from windows.

I use Earth Brite cleaner and a Druide Ecotrail multi purpose liquid soap.
