London , June 28 (ANI): Had enough with new bug-killing solutions to avert that disgusting smell in T-shirts and socks? Well, now make sure to smell good by wearing clothes that have in-built mosquito repellent.

Developed by Tesco, these T-shirts and socks would also smell of different types of scents, as they are woven with extracts of lemon eucalyptus and lavender.

Boffins have also coated these clothing items with a special layer to lock in the smell mozzies hate.

Going on sale today onwards, these cotton items are reasonably priced. While the T-shirts cost 8 pounds (children’s 5-6 pounds), the socks are priced at 4 pounds a pack.

In fact, the scientists have promised that the repellent will remain active for up to six washes. (ANI)
