Always follow the manufacturers’ instructions when using these products. In general, use enough repellent to cover exposed skin and clothing; it is not necessary to apply repellent to skin under clothing. Do not apply repellent to cuts, wounds, irritated skin or open sores. After returning from outdoor activity, wash treated areas with soap and water. Do not apply aerosol products directly to your face – spray into your hands and rub onto the face (avoiding mouth and eyes), and then wash hands. Do not spray in enclosed areas or near food.
