DIY mosquitoes Netting

Being attacked by mosquitoes during your bedtime is really unbearable. What more the mosquitoes attacking the kids and you can see their faces, hands and legs have red marks the next morning.

Then, hubby noticed an advertisment from the newspaper about the netting and asked me to check online on the prices and information. Found their website and got to know that they have those DIY type which holds on to the window panel by using magnet. Hubby is quite interested with that product and since he has some stronger magnet at home, he is confident that the netting will stand on the window throughout the whole night even there are strong winds. That will definately sovle our mozzies problems.

But it is quite pricey for 1 piece of the mozzie netting (according to our window's measurement) which cost RM150. Hubby then cames out with a BRILLANT idea. Why not we create our own netting.

He pandai - pandai goes to the hardware shop and bought his own material.

The 3.5 ft netting and some tapes (RM37.50). Enough to make 2 nettings

Hubby's BIG AMBITIONS turn out to be a BIG DISSAPOINTMENT instead !
Never did we know that our window panel is made of ALUMINIUM ! So how is the magnet going to stick? *shake head*
