This is a thank you to Sandy (I think that was the original person who posted the dawn/vinegar/tea tree oil remedy). THANK YOU!!! Found out someone I was dating for 1 1/2 years was really messing around with every chic that wanted to show him her hole lol -- so he gave me the gift that kept on giving -- much to my surprise as I have NEVER had lice let alone the nightmare of trying to get rid of them... I went out and bought Rid, I swear they had a party asking where the lime was after the treatment -- didn't seem to make a difference (sorry need to keep a sense of humor about all this). I tried a couple of other OTC remedies didn't do anything either. I stumbled upon this website and THANKS EVERYONE but especially SANDY for posting the one that was the winner... I can't say I am 100% free yet, as I have only done one coating -- but I was stunned that one day after doing the Rid stuff (less than that I did that last night and it's afternoon now) once I slathered the Dawn concoction on (all over, head to toe since I was infested) I could feel all the eggs sliding down not to mention see all the gross little buggers... Kept it on for 7 minutes (I know you said 5 minutes but I thought more may be better cause I want these buggers gone!), stepped in the shower and was soooo disgusted (and happy) to see all the critters go down the drain -- stunned that I had that much on me... Will still do this every day for a week but I definitely feel like I am on the right track -- I feel 70% less itchy already -- this method works!!! And my skin feels tighter too lol (think that's the tea tree oil). A million thanks and anyone who is infested, really, try this method. It doesn't cost much, it's a bit messy (I just stood in the bathroom during all of it, yea I spilled some of it on the floor but it's no big deal whatsoever), but it works! Lesson here is -- even if you think you're in a monogamous relationship, the little bugger may have other ideas (and I would never have known if he hadn't contracted crabs himself -- ironically he claims not to have any symptoms -- I find it very hard to believe since I KNOW he has to be the source of this for me)... But this method works, doesn't hurt, non-toxic so you can put it everywhere, and it relatively inexpensive -- the most expensive part is the tea tree oil... So again THANK YOU -- YOU HAVE NO IDEA HOW MUCH I APPRECIATE THIS WHOLE WEBSITE BUT AGAIN FOR THIS PARTICULAR REMEDY!!!
