"GHOST / MONSTER-B-GONE"
submitted by Debra (Thank You!)

INGREDIENTS:

1 cup Water
1 Tablespoon of Salt
2-3 Teaspoons Vanilla Extract

INSTRUCTIONS:

Mix Water and Salt in a Small mixing bowl until Salt dissolves.
Add Vanilla Extract.
Mix well.

HOW DOES IT WORK?

The salt in the formula chases away all of the mean ghosts,
but the friendly ones, like Casper, stay.
The scary monsters are chased away by the sweet scent of vanilla.
Of course Nice Monsters LIKE vanilla, so they stay around, too.
"Whamo! Ghost & Monster-B-Gone!

"I let my kids watch me mix it up. I put the mixture into
a pretty silver spray bottle I bought at the Dollar tree for $1.00.
If my kids ever feel like there is a ghost or monster,
they can spray it all around their room, under the beds and in the closets.

"I love this recipe for Ghost & Monster-B-Gone because I have a 3 year old
that loves to taste things, kinda scary actually, so if she tastes the spray,
it is not toxic and honestly does not taste very good.

"The COST, on the other hand, is very Not-scary.
... Grand total: $1.01 (including spray bottle!)

Hope you all find it useful!"

VERY useful. Thanks Debra! ~Mrs. Mouse
