Mosquito spray called "Off"

Post by Ralfredo » Thu Feb 02, 2017 9:17 am

I have always used a mosquitoe spray called "Off". It's an orange bottle and it was available "everywhere". Now I can't find it. Any ideas where it's sold?

Do you mean at the first floor on the "mall" close to the clock tower? Thanks for the hint by the way!

You can still get the orange spray can in most pharmacies and even Tesco Lotus, I always use it.

Getting hold of 'Off' in the busy season is like many things, for example 'Malbro Silver' cigarettes, places that normally have them stocked, run out quickly and take a while or don't / can't restock.

I very rarely get bitten and, despite having had a bad bout of dengue, will not spray those chemical ones on my skin. I have a friend over that has over 60 bites per leg after travelling around for a few days. If I am travelling or starting to get bitten in HH I use a soap that a friends wife makes called secret recipe. It is 100% natural and it works :D

web address hatemosquito.com It is available in Market village but I go direct. They speak English and are Hua Hin based. Just ordered some soap and spray for my friend.

There is a shortage of Off apparently due to one of the major suppliers in Bangkok no longer stocking it.
I eventually found some yesterday in 7/11 after failing at my 3 usual places.
