Does DEET wash off in water?
Unlike sunscreen, very little DEET would be washed off with water and will last for several hours. Repeated application of a DEET-containing sunscreen product may increase the potential for toxic effects of DEET. Apply repellents only to exposed skin and/or clothing (as directed on the product label).
Should you spray DEET on clothes or skin?
Spray shirts, pants, socks and hats―but don’t spray under clothing. To help protect against ticks and chiggers, apply to cuffs, sleeve openings, socks and other openings in outer clothing.
Should you wash DEET off?
DEET doesn’t wear off as quickly as sunscreen, so you could end up with unsafe amounts of DEET on your skin. Apply DEET only to exposed skin and/or clothing. Once you return indoors, make sure you wash off the DEET with soap and water.
What strength of DEET should I use?
DEET is available in varying strengths up to 100%. Research shows that strengths greater than 50% do not provide substantially higher protection. Unless you are in areas with a large number of mosquitoes, repellents with 10% to 24% DEET should keep most mosquitoes away from your skin.
