Mosquito Repellent

Recommended Posts

Anyone seen 'OFF' Mosquito Repellant for sale anywhere lately.

 

None in the usual Supermarkets, and it was never really an item stocked by the Pharmacies.

 

Really hoping that it has not gone the way of Autan and the other Repellents that actually worked, but disappeared from Thailand.

 

All the others do not work, and/or stink of Citronella.

I must admit couldn't find it at one or two places, but did in BigCX. I don't think they are good at maintaining stock here...I was all over the place looking for my Lea and Perrins.

Sketolene sold at 7/11 is plainly a tourist trap. And often out of stock....well not any more as tourists are dwindling...

Usually at 7/11 or Tesco, but as already mentioned not always available.

 

If I do see some I usually buy 3 or 4 cans, and start looking again when I start the last can.

 

Never run out yet.  :thumbsup:

Plenty of Sketolene in Friendship, including their Jungle Formula.

 

Friendship has a decent selection actually, including Off but in cream form.

 

But alas no Off Active.

I bought 2 cans last week at Big C. They quite often run out of stock and there can be a couple of weeks before restocking, you have to keep checking.

Maybe ...

 

Personally, I think it's different this time.

 

But I do remember this happening with OFF before about 3-4 years ago.

 

It was around 80-90 baht at that time, then it disappeared off the shelves for some time, then suddenly returned with a different packaging and was now around the 130 baht price range.

 

I remember I then found some at the Cash & Carry type place off Photisan at the old price, so I bought all that they had.

 

Time will tell.

I always use this stuff. Never been bitten while wearing it.

It also repels bargirls and village tramps.

Got it from Macro.

Well, I got a reply from SC Johnson's Consumer Relationship Center, who do not understand why I having difficulty in finding the item, and have confirmed that they continue to distribute it in Thailand.

 

So, I guess that is good news and it is just a blip.
