Mosquito repellant or floor-stripper?

Dear Editor,

Whatever we rub on our skin enters the body and the bloodstream and eventually must have a discourse with our liver, so the biologists imply. Because we’re tropical, mosquitoes are our natural tormentors. I use time and time again mosquito sprays when working at the computer, etc, and it was brought to my attention by my wife that the spray is lifting up the floor polish. I’m not sure whether something that can work as a mild floor stripper is ideal to spray or rub on my skin. Both brands are manufactured locally. I spoke to a drugstore owner, and he said that one brand got sprayed on his cell phone by mistake and it totalled the face of the phone. I’m not sure who the authority is that can advise on this. I’ve discontinued both, but I am aware that other citizens are still using mosquito repellents. I do hope for a public response.

Yours faithfully,

Barrington Braithwaite
