I used this when my son was 2 1/2!!
Recipe for MONSTER SPRAY:
1 spray bottle (get the big one, it works better!!)
2 cups of tap water
3 pinches of baby powder
4 pumps or small squirts of hand sanitizer (the kind with the moisturizing beads makes it that much stronger against monsters!!)
Get all ingredients there and have the child add all ingredients to the bottle. Put top on and shake vigorously.
Instruct child to spray any and ALL places any monsters could be......DON'T FORGET THE CLOSET, TOY BOX, and UNDER THE BED!!!
(now, when we moved into our new house, we had our pastor say a prayer for our house. (more ammo) I tell my son that our house is now blessed and God won't let in any monsters or ghosteses. Then, JUST TO BE SURE, we would walk around and I would tell him to spray all the spots he thinks a monster could hide in. We hit everything and, I must admit, the first night, the carpet was pretty wet... but it dried!! When he had sprayed everything (a SUPER FINE MIST works best, for mom too), then we would go around once more and make sure we found all the missed spots, we usually found one or two more.
The hand sanitizer smell lets you KNOW that the spray is working. Monsters really HATE that smell!! It also gave HIM control over the monsters! I left the bottle next to his bed for a while, but after a week, the monsters were gone. The buggers tried to come back a couple months later, but he GOT 'em again!!! They have not been back in two years!!!
GUARANTEED OR YOUR MONEY BACK!!
Don't forget to spray uncle too!!
