Mosquito season is here!
As evening approaches on a lovely warm day in Melbourne, our backyards and our homes are invaded by thousands of unwelcome mosquitoes.
Have you noticed their bites are particularly painful this year?
A cool tip to sooth the sting of the dreaded mosquito bite is to apply a small amount of toothpaste onto the itchy welt.
The anti-inflammatory ingredients of toothpaste can provide hours of relief to the itchy area. It may be a good idea to throw a tube of toothpaste into your picnic bag before you head out!
