Bulk instructions for a less wasteful Picaridin spray use:

Question: Is it possible to buy a refill for the spray bottle? I do not want to throw the pump in the trash for each bottle I order. Great product

Answer:
If your going to use multiple bottles of permethrine…this is what i did. I bought a bottle of permethrine 36.8%, sometimes called “permethrine SFR”. Then I got a one gallon lawn and garden sprayer. The are about $10 dollars . The just dilute the permethrine to the .5% strength like the sawyer’s is. That is half of one percent. Dilute as follows. 1 gallon of water gets 2 ounces of 36.8% permethrine to give you .5% . Sooo much cheaper this way. And your right why buy and throw out all those plastic bottles, Permethrine SFR is available on Amazon. The bottle have a ounce measuring thing built in. Make gallons of the stuff for so little money…Or of course you could buy the 10% permethrine and just dilute that to .5% to make a little less. Or dilute the SFR to 1%…that lasts longer on clothes. Just use 4 ounces of SFR in one gallon (my preference) I treat everything I wear from the waist down, socks and shoes, pants shorts. My wife’s clothes too. Hope that helps. see less  By Scott 1953 on May 9, 2014

Hi there and welcome!
I'm glad you found our little corner of the internet. It's a safe place to hang out, listen to a good book, and maybe get a little crafty while you do.
CraftLit has been going (almost) weekly since 2006 so we have quite a few books in our Library for you. If one isn't to your liking, I'm sure another one will.
Relax and let your ears do the reading for a bit.
