Dave's Garden Cookbook: JERRY BAKER'S 'CLEAN UP TONIC' & SUMMER INSECT DISESE CONTROL

JERRY BAKER'S 'CLEAN UP TONIC' & SUMMER INSECT DISESE CONTROL

By gardendragon

Category: Miscellaneous Recipes

Ingredients

To discourage insects and prevent disease (what I call hanky panky in the garden), bathe all yard areas every 2 weeks.
1 cup of Shampoo
1 cup of Chewing Tobacco Juice*
1 cup of Antiseptic Mouthwash

Instructions:

Mix in your 20-gallon hose-end sprayer, filling the balance of the sprayer jar with warm water.

Extra Notes:

* Chewing tobacco juice is made by placing 3 fingers of chewing tobacco into the toe of an old nylon stocking, and soaking it in a gallon of hot water until the mixture is dark brown.
