Aloha wahines eia ho’i kanes!
Belle here to introduce a member of the management team at The Hawaiian Princess and The Wonder Puppy. I’m pleased to introduce Tilly, our Director of Technology and Innovation. Think of James Bond’s ‘Q’ with a wet nose and a tail. She’s a big sweetheart and a very clever scientist. Her group of dedicated researchers work overtime to be able to share interesting tips, toys and techniques every camper can use. So, without further ado, here’s Tilly.
I’m quite pleased to be here and I plan to keep things in the lab humming while we answer the many questions that fill our inbox. One question that constantly comes up is about – MOSQUITOES. How do we keep the little blood suckers at bay, save our tender skin from bites and avoid itching. My lab rats and I have come up with three suggestions. Each one has been researched, field tested under extreme conditions and certified here at the HPaTWP testing center. We give them our WOOF seal of approval.
- We love our Avon Lady and all of the goodies in her bag of tricks. Our favorite item is Avon Skin-So-Soft Bug Guard Plus with Picaridin. It smells terrific, works like a charm, goes on effortlessly without wasting any of the precious liquid and it leaves our Hawaiian Princess (HRH) with extremely soft skin. She deserves nothing less.
- Our second Woof Seal Winner is Listerine Cool Mint Antiseptic Mouthwash. We recommend filling a spray bottle with the mouthwash and spraying it liberally around your campsite. We use it during our meals, while cooking or just sitting around the campfire listening to HRH sharing her many and harrowing adventures, hang on every word as she speaks of the beauty of Hawaii and just being princessly. All the while enjoying a mosquito-free evening in a campground that smells minty fresh.
- Lastly, we recommend, after exhaustive testing, the quintessential mosquito repellent, the Citronella Candle. What a simple, yet elegant solution. Stink the little blighters out of your area with citronella. They are inexpensive, require no fancy equipment and do the job. What could be better or more deserving than a Woof from our labs.
There you have it, my first Tilly Tip. I will be slipping in sage advice frequently to help make your camping experience extremely enjoyable.
