Remedy No. 1 Bleach Bath – I know this sounds crazy, but this one has worked great for me and most anyone I have recommended it to. My grandparents used this remedy after working in corn fields, cutting hay or working in the garden. The ingredients are quite simple: standard household bleach, warm bath water, and a large bathtub. Just add about 1/4 to 1/2 cup bleach to a full bathtub (with water enough to cover your body where the chiggers have bitten) and soak. From what I understand about this remedy, the bleach dries out the bite, kills any leftover critters, and tames the itch. It can be repeated as needed.
