Cases of the Zika virus are reported in almost every state in the U.S.
Now, you can create a “no fly zone” around you, and look hip and fashionable in the process!
A growing number of clothing lines are making everyday wear specially treated to repel mosquitoes. Items are treated with permethrin, an insect repellent approved by the EPA and recommended by the CDC in its Zika virus prevention tips.
Clothing is typically good for up to 70 washes and repels other insects like ticks. Some companies allow you to send your own clothing to be treated with the repellent.
