Should you shower before bed if you had on bug spray? Is it safer if its deet free?

  • Oh yes- you don't want to keep those chemicals on your body any longer than necessary.

  • I shower before bed, or when I'm ready to lounge at home, regardless of bug spray, because I don't want to track the dirt from the day into my bed. It's good to keep a clean bed.

    So yes I would shower, really well, extra soap please :)

  • I would. And we are a chemical free household, so we don't use bug spray with DEET.
