  • About this item

    This Sawyer Premium Permethrin Clothing Insect Repellent repels insects and kills ticks, mosquitoes, chiggers, mites and more than 55 other kinds of insects on contact.

    Sawyer Products Premium Insect Repellent for Clothing and Gear:

    • The Sawyer Premium Insect Repellent is for use on clothing, tents and other gear
    • Repels insects
    • The Sawyer Premium Permethrin Clothing Insect Repellent kills ticks, mosquitoes, chiggers, mites and more than 55 other kinds of insects on contact
    • The active ingredient, Permethrin, is a synthetic molecule similar to pyrethrum which is taken from the chrysanthemum flower
    • When applied to clothing, Permethrin binds to the fabric eliminating the risk of over-exposure to the skin
    • Odorless when dry
    • Will not stain or damage clothing, fabrics, plastics, finished surfaces or any of your outdoor gear
    • Single application of the Sawyer Premium Permethrin Clothing Insect Repellent lasts 6 washings
    • Follow the directions for use on the package label
    • The Sawyer Insect Repellent for Clothing and Gear is a contact insecticide
    • Same active ingredient used in hair shampoos for head lice
    • As a clothing, tent or sleeping bag application, Permethrin is very effective at keeping ticks from attaching to you and at reducing the mosquito population in your camping area
    • An effective repellent against mosquitoes and flies
    • The Sawyer Insect Repellent for Clothing and Gear can be used in conjunction with a skin-based repellent
    • Can be used as the primary repellent if the exposed skin area (gaps in the treated clothing) is not too large
    • By storing the treated clothing in black plastic bags between uses the protection can be extended considerably
    • For treatment of packs, tents, camp chairs and other non-washable items the application will last through 42 days of exposure to sun and air
    • Treating a tent and camp chairs while camping is an excellent source of bug protection
    • 3 oz of formula per garment is recommended
    • If you are treating your socks, they count in the overall application as well and the formula used is part of the 6 oz needed to treat an outfit
    • Applying less than 3 oz per garment will lead to unsatisfactory results
    • Treating your shirt and pants is much more effective than just treating 1 of the garments
    • Treating your back-pack significantly adds to the protection from your shirt and pants
    • Sweating and exposure to water does not significantly deteriorate the application of Sawyer Premium Insect Repellent
    • Do not expose cats to wet Permethrin as it affects their central nervous system
    • Cats can be around Permethrin-treated fabrics once the application has dried

    Customer review by sunoh100

    I bought large bottle in very LARGE quantities of this product from other vendor, but I needed more so I bought extra 4 more bottles from Wal-mart, which was half the size bottle. I used this product for my organized group to Ecuador on a missionary trip. EVERYONE used this product during the missionary trip and they cannot say enough of compliments to me. They literally saw all kinds of bugs ACTUALLY being killed or falling out from garments touch. This product WORKS so well from mosquitoes, ticks, fleas...... EVERY bugs that mentioned on the bottle. I HIGHLY recommend this for EVERYONE. My other group that went to Mexico on a missionary trip did NOT prepare like I have and took other typical repellent. It DIDN'T DO ANYTHING. When they returned home, they had ALL kinds of bug bites ALL OVER their bodies. They spent over a week applying alcohol ALL over their bodies (chest, legs, back, neck, feet, arms, and hand) 'cause of the bug bites they got from Mexico during the missionary trip.

    This is by far the best product to use to combat ticks, and other bug's while working outside. My Husband found this product on line, and purchased it early this summer from Wall Mart. If you want to be protected while in the yard ( or really working in heavy brush and tree area's) this is the most effective product you can use. It keeps you tick safe. Sometime's you may find one on your clothing BUT the tick is DEAD!!!!! We swear by this product, and Thank Walmart for carrying it! Do Not hesitate to try and use this product! Would have given it a 10 star if possible, and of course Walmart 100 stars. We live in more of a rural area, and Thank Walmart for being near!!!!!!! Joannie :) & Tony

    I have used this product for several years and I think it works great and does just what it claims to do. It also allows me to use less bug repellent product directly on my skin.
