Ultrathon and Permethrin Clothing Soak

  • 1695

When maximum protection against insect bites is needed or desired, the ideal solution is to use a DEET repellent on exposed skin and apply permethrin to your clothing.

An extended-duration DEET insect repellent (Ultrathon®) and permethrin-treated clothing is the standard personal protection system used by the U.S. military deployed in areas of the world where insect-borne disease is a real threat. One field study showed that the use of these products together provided 99.9% protection against mosquito bites, in an environment where unprotected persons received an average of 1,188 bites per hour!

Clothing soaked in permethrin solution protects up to 6 weeks and through 6 washings, whichever comes first.


      • 1 Ultrathon 2-oz. Controlled Release DEET Lotion
      • One 6-oz. bottle of permethrin solution, 1 treatment bag, waterproof gloves, and instructions.


 One bottle of Sawyer Military-Style Clothing Soak permethrin is sufficient to treat a set of garments consisting of a shirt, trousers, and socks or one mosquito net. Soak your items in the permethrin/water solution for 2 hours then hang to dry. Effective for a minimum of 6 weeks.

"I found the product extremely effective. I was traveling in an area with heavy mosquito infestation but it was as if I had an invisible shield around me. It was so effective that instead of using a mosquito net, I simply slept in my 3M ultrathon repellent-treated clothes."
