The EPA rates the pesticide in the Buzz Off fabric as Class 4, meaning
"relatively non-toxic."  The Permthrin you spray onto clothing
yourself is Class 3, "slightly toxic."   So there is some reduced risk
of exposure when using the Buzz Off fabric.

When using the spray-on Permethrin on your clothing, be sure to let it
dry thoroughly before wearing.
