In­sect Re­pel­lent £2 (100ml)

Wanderlust Travel Magazine (UK) - - Masterclass Gear -

I dis­cov­ered Wilko’s own-brand spray when buy­ing a last-minute re­pel­lent for a malaria-af­fected coun­try. The check­out as­sis­tant was from In­dia and told me he swore by it when he went home. It’s strong – 50% DEET as stan­dard – so it’s not for kids un­der six years. It smells much like the other DEET prod­ucts, but its spray cov­ers quickly, leav­ing you quite dry and not too sticky. It was pretty ef­fec­tive against bit­ing in­sects when I used it; and for the price, it can’t be beaten. Verdict: A bar­gain buy for malaria-risk destinations. www.wilko.com
