Protect Your Clothing
In addition to using a quality repellant, you can also protect your clothing. You do this by using permethrin, which is essentially a way to spray and protect your clothes from disease-carrying insects. Using permethrin is a perfectly good way to protect yourself from the Zika virus. The permethrin you purchase will have different ways of applying, but are generally the same. Be sure to check how long it lasts. Typically, permethrin can last after multiple rounds through the washing machine. It’s smart to apply it frequently since the effect can wear off after some time. Just read the directions, apply and you’re good to go!
