Nothing interrupts summer fun more than pesky mosquito bites! They can be annoying and for some can become a real problem as these bites can swell and itch like crazy. So, what is the best way to conquer these bug bites? Well, you can buy in-store products to soothe the itch but that can become costly. So why not try making your own DIY remedies for mosquito bites? It’s easy and won’t take more than a few minutes for hours of relief. Check out the list below for 5 DIY ways to remedy mosquito bites:

  1. Toothpaste: One of the easiest and fastest remedies for itchy bug bites is toothpaste! All you have to do is apply a small drop of toothpaste directly on the bite to reduce swelling and itchiness.
  2. Salt: It’s amazing what regular kitchen products such as salt can do! Simply, wet the bug bite with warm water and sprinkle salt generously over the bite.  Let the water and salt dry on your arm for best results!
  3. Banana Peel: If you are out for a hike or on a picnic this is the perfect remedy to a scratchy bite! Simply rub the inside of a banana peel directly on the bite to bring down swelling and the itchy feeling.
  4. Baking Soda: Another great kitchen item for bug bites is baking soda. Start by making a small paste of baking soda and water in a small bowl. Once it has reached paste form, apply directly to the bite.  Let it dry and wash the area once itching has stopped!
  5. Lemon Slice: Last but not least, a quick fix for annoying mosquito bites is lemon! Simply, apply the lemon slice directly to the mosquito bite and let it sit till the bite starts to reduce or if the itching subsides.
