Have any of you had any luck w/ the Off Clip-on?

With the weather getting nicer, I'd like to know if I should get some or not waste my money. Have you had any luck w/ it?

  • we tried them and had luck if you were sitting still (watching fireworks, around a fire, or eating dinner) but if you are chasing kids around, etc they didn't work the best

  • One of my daughters-in-laws used them all last summer, and she thinks they helped. I have not tried them. What I have found that works is to spritz myself with pure old Listerine or a similar store brand, and the bugs stay away. They probably can't stand the smell of the stuff, either.

  • We've used them, they seem to work when you are sitting around. It's so much better than spraying chemicals on your skin.

  • We use them when we go camping and they do work as long as you are not moving around. They kind of build up that barrier that they speak of but if you are moving around you lose it and they don't really work well. We also buy the off lanterns. They are awesome. They have a pad and a candle that you put them and they work super well on a fairly large area.

  • Waste of money. Once you move, your protective cloud is gone and you have to start over, meanwhile, the bugs get you.

  • Haven't tried them, we use Avon skin so soft, it helps as much as anything I've found.
