How To Use A Mosquito Net13th December '10

At times it may seem a bit obvious on how to use a mosquito net but when you are trying to disengage yourself from the clutches of a rogue one, these tips may come in useful.

1. First make sure that the net has been tied up above your head in a knot, as this will prevent anything from crawling into it during the day.
2. More often than not your mosquito nets will be arranged for you, but if this is not the case make sure that when you untie it there are no friendly bugs in it!
3. Doublecheck there were no holes in the net as this will defeat the object. Tape of any kind is an instant fix.
4. Pull the net taught over your bed and tuck it firmly under the mattress. This prevents the net brushing against your face at night. It is best to do this before supper, because after supper and the superb wines that you’ve consumed, it may make things a little bit more complicated.
5. Spray inside the net with insect repellent to kill any rogue insects, just to double check there is nothing unwanted sharing your bed with me.

Sleep well!
