** Although they smell terrible, they do the job. Oily Garden Repellent: Remains on the plant longer and does its work longer. Use it on flowers, bushes, and shrubs, but NOT on edible vegetables and fruits. Puree garlic in blender, peel and all Add 1/4c water and scrape down sides. Continue blending until mixture is a fine mush. Strain through cheesecloth or an old nylon stocking. In large, clean glass jar, mix mineral oil and soap. Add garlic water mixture and stir thoroughly, then add the rest of the water. Label jar and store in a cool, dry place for up to 1 mo. To Use: Pour into a sprayer and spray upper and lower surfaces of the plant's foliage. Spray also around roots. It is best to spray in the morning before the sun is too hot or in the late afternoon. Do not water immediately after spraying. Vegetable-garden Repellent: Puree garlic, pepper, and onion in blender, peels and all. Add 1/4c water and scrape down the sides. Continue blending until mixture is a fine mush. Strain through cheesecloth or nylon stocking. In large clean jar, mix wood ash and lime, add garlic onion mixture and stir thoroughly. Add rest of the water. Label and store in cool dry place for up to 1 mo. To Use: Pour into sprayer and spray upper and lower surfaces of plant's foliage. Spray around roots in morning or late afternoon. Don't water immediately after spraying. 16 oz. Big savings. Make it Yourself: Great on herb and vegetable gardens. Liquefy garlic with 1c water in blender. Combine with detergent and the gallon of water. Let this ripen 24 hours; strain. Apply from a spray bottle as needed. Shared by Sherilyn Schamber
