Thread: Deet!

  1. #1


    Just a reminder/warning about the damage Deet can do to equipment. Just been sorting out the box of kit I keep in the truck and found an old leaky bottle of Deet lurking at the bottom amid a black puddle of melted plastic!

    Bye bye lamp battery cover, charging wire, carcass tags and assorted sundries

    Yep pretty powerful stuff yet we still splash it all over, well at least I've got something to blame my ageing good looks on!

    Yes I should follow your example when it comes to looking after kit

    It's melted the non slip grippy rubber bits on my leather rifle sling
    "It's halfway down the hill, directly below that tree next to a rock that looks like a bell-end"

    DEETis a known plasticiser, fine on healthy skin up to 50%

    One of the best stock strippers around

    It also damages spectacle arms & nose pads. After applying carefully wash your hands before having a pee, unless S&M is your thing.

    10/10 for BushWear's midge net... It seems impervious to Deet! Given it a rinse in fairy liquid and she's good to go again for those itchy windless sika sit-outs by the river
