  1. Do you have a hole in your air mattress? Melt a glue stick with a lighter and rub it on the hole. Once it’s dry, it will be good as new.

 

  1. If you combine 1-part tea tree oil and 2- parts water in a spray bottle and spray it on your clothes, it will keep ticks at bay.

 

  1. Out hiking and your pants get ripped by a thorny bush? Use dental floss as thread and sew them up. Dental floss is a sturdy alternative to string or thread.

 

  1. An effortless way to make coffee is to pour grounds into a filter, tie it up, and place it in a cup of hot water. It will work like a tea bag.

  1. If you attach a cork to your keys and the keys somehow end up in water, they’ll float. This is extremely helpful for boating, fishing, swimming, and several other water activities.

 

  1. Did you know flies hate the smell of Pine-Sol? Mix Pine-Sol and water 50/50 in a spray bottle and spray it on every surface around you. This will keep flies from being an inconvenience.

  1. If you put sage in your campfire it will help repel mosquitos.

 

  1. Sick of itchy mosquito bites? Heat a spoon with hot water and place it on the bite. This will destroy the protein that causes the itch.
