Oh My Gluestick: Homemade DOG SCRUB flea treatment shampoo. DIY flea killer for pets: mix half a container of iodized salt & a few squirts of the blue Dawn dish soap to get the consistency of a good salt scrub. don't want it too runny or dry. Scrub pets, rinse, careful not to get in eyes. Dawn is the source of killing fleas. Massaging salt in the skin helps to kill flea eggs that were laid.
A friend told us about a method is very effective. 1 gallon of water, add 4 to 6 teasoons of white vinegar to it, and give it to your pets as their only drinking water. We havn't seen a flea in over ten years. It works on any animal. We have a dog (7yo) that has never seen a flea. Commercial flea preparations are bad for the health of our pets AND US!! I am going to try this. I imagine it sours the blood? We will see! I hate Chemical treatments!!!
