So I was just dancing like a weirdo on purpose with earphones in unaware of the police knocking on my window... lol
No idea what they must of thought.

 

Then I go outside because there is some random trampoline in the garden that was not there before.  So I put on my video camera and just randomly filmed myself jumping off of it and ran back inside, only to find out that my neighbour was out there hanging her washing.

 

So that's two accounts of witnessed insanity today... 

 

:lol:

So, I looked up on google for ways to exterminate dust mites from the home and prevent them coming back....

Not quite what I had in mind by my question...

That sounds crazy. Clean, scrub, vacuum and get rid of soft fabric stuff.

It's not in soft fabrics I have them, but on hard surfaces, my desk etc. I kill them, clean up but they always come back. Need a way of preventing nesting/breeding, something to repel, a natural product if possible.

Though, looking them up they say dust mites are not visible to the human eye, yet I can see these things, they are tiny, little black dots running around, on the surfaces, in draws, books, about 1-2 millimetres in size max. Lice of some kind. Closest identification I can look up are "book lice" or "biscuit lice".

Vinegar? Borax? 

While this may not be energy efficient, cold water will not kill dust mites. Also, according to a study at the University of Sydney Australia, adding Eucalyptus essential oil to your wash will eliminate 99% of dust mites from your bedding. The heat from the dryer should finish off the rest.Feb 24, 2015

Personally I'd try strong vodka, like Everclear. In a spray bottle. I use it in  motels when I go. Spray them good. Most things can't live through that.

I will check this out. I have never heard of this before. Sounds interesting.

It's something I learned from the cancer clinic in Mexico. I (use a micro-spray) spray the remote, toilet seat, faucet, door handles, table tops. Anything actually. As long as you can get a sprayer that does a fine mist spray. The Everclear is so strong it cleans up so many pathogens. 

 

As a side note, you have to ask for Everclear at the liquor store, it's not on the shelves. Maybe have to order it.

Do you drive after misting yourself with alcohol? :D

Would rubbing alcohol work?

The smell of rubbing alcohol probably wouldn't confuse the maid as much as the half empty bottle of Vodka next to your Bible....:eek:
