    Hello to everyone. I saw the post yesterday on this wonderful spray. Also, saw the recipe for it. Question is, I like the clear, so I would think I would leave the essential oils out and only use the distilled water and vodka. Whoever, do you smell the vodka? And, does this really and truly work. I also saw where silverfish will come after corn products, does vodka have corn products in it? Any info helpful.

    Isn't vodka from potatoes-hence the starch I guess. :) Also I don't think you have a lingering odor. Will watch to see what better informed readers have to say.

    I make my own and there is no alcohol smell. I don't know about silverfish because they are in higher humidity areas than I live.

    Do you leave the oils out ?

    I can smell it when I initially spray it but it does not linger. As far as starch and silverfish, folks on this board say that it does draw them and some adamantly state that it does not. I use starch all the time and have yet to see one silverfish...

    I started using the Niagara nin aerosol starch. Much cheaper than best press and the same results. $1.87 at Walmart
