Why Shoo for Good?
Shoo for Good was created to give you a simple, stylish solution to help you enjoy the outdoors without the distraction of biting bugs.
Shoo for Good's 100% cotton wraps create fair-wage jobs and help sustain the hand-spinning, dyeing, and weaving traditions of Ethiopia.
We are committed to the fight against malaria. With every wrap sold, we make a donation to our partner, Nothing But Nets, the United Nations Foundation’s effort to save lives by distributing protective bed nets to families in need.
Can I wash my wrap?
Yes, you can wash by hand or in the machine with cold water. Best to line-dry, but you can machine-dry, too. Use a cool iron. Do not dry-clean.
What about the repellency? How long will it last?
Repellency lasts for 70 washings!
Is it safe?
According to the EPA, the small amount of permethrin used to treat clothing is too low to pose risks to people including pregnant women and children. For more information, visit our Insect Shield page.
What's the difference between a wrap, a scarf, and a throw?
Wraps are larger than scarves and offer more coverage. Scarves aren't quite as wide (nice for petites) and are easy for men to wear. Throws are a bit heavier and are great for cool evenings. Plus, they can be tossed on the lawn or sand to deter ticks, ants, and other bugs.
Will my ankles be protected?
Yes, if you wear your wrap sarong-style around your waist. (The wraps also repel ticks.) If it's over your shoulders, your oversize wrap will protect your upper body.
For a natural spray to use on your ankles, we recommend one made with oil of lemon eucalyptus (OLE), like Repel Lemon Eucalyptus Insect Repellent. (Other natural options contain lemon eucalyptus essential oil, which is different and less effective.)
I got a mosquito bite! What's up with that?
Some mosquitoes are determined. I'm really sorry. If you're in a particularly infested area, you might want to pair with additional methods of protection.
Is shipping free?
Yes. Standard shipping is free in the continental United States.
Do you ship internationally?
Yes, we do! Please pick the shipping option that works best for you. Please be aware, though, that you may encounter import fees including duties and taxes.
The bugs are biting! Can my order be rushed?
Yes, but there will be a postal charge for that. When you check out select the shipping option that works best for you.
What’s your exchange or return policy?
We want you to love your Shoo for Good wrap! We want it to improve your life! If, for some reason, you don’t love it, please return your wrap within 14 days and we will refund the sale. All returns must be in new condition, with hang tags attached.
