RE: Fw: Listerine?


I tried a concoction of Listerine, tiny bit of soap, and something
else...hmmm can't remember exactly what it was...on our horse who is
allergic to fly bites. Found it on some internet horse forums, highly
touted as effective. Didn't help in the least.

Can it be sprayed on the person?  If I'm moving around working in the
yard I
don't want to spray the whole yard.  Would it affect plants in any way?
