Did you know that Monsters hate sugar and lemons? They do. This Instructable contains all the ingredients you will need to rid any home of pesty, stinky monsters.
Around the time my first child was born, my husband and I purchased a fixer-upper on the northwest side of Chicago. A red brick Georgian in need of a tremendous amount of work, but lots of potential. I can honestly say I loved that house and its creaky floors, squeaky doors, bumps in the attic and bangs in the basement. My daughter found its charms frightening.
We went through the MONSTER IN THE CLOSET stage. At first we tried the realistic approach: There's no such thing as monsters. This didn't work for us at all. We tried showing her the inside of the closet and the underside of the bed. Didn't work. We tried to convince her that Daddy was a world class champion monster fighter. No luck.
At dinner one night, she says to us, in her little voice: Why don't you believe me? Wow!
I believed that her fear was very real and changed my approach. I decided to give her the power she needed to vanquish monsters from her life for good. We mixed up a concoction of Monster Repellent that is guaranteed to keep even the scariest, most stubborn monsters at bay.
