The Best Home Remedies for Mosquito Bites

Well, the mosquito population was thriving over the Memorial Day weekend. I know this thanks to all the bites I got just above my ankles. DON’T YOU JUST HATE MOSQUITO BITE ITCH?! As I did what every man does, lay on the couch an complain to his wife that this itch cream that’s been in the medicine cabinet for several years doesn’t work, she took to the internet and found some of the best home remedies for such a quandry:

**Rub the inside of a banana peel on the bites
**Heat a spoon with hot tap water and press against the bites
**Use peppermint toothpaste as a salve (must be peppermint)
**Rub a clove of garlic on the area as soon as you notice it
**Put a small dab of vanilla on the bite and let it dry
**Apply some lemon on the the bite…it might sting, but they say it works
**Mix baking soda and warm water and apply the paste
**Apply vinegar with a cotton ball
**Dab the area with a cooled tea bag

The people who shared these ideas swear by them, but it’s possible you’ll have to try several to find that one that works best for you.
