Every time my daughter goes to her dad's house she gets lice, it is getting very irritating. Needless to say I've become somewhat a pro at getting rid of lice within a day. The first thing I do is get her clothes and bedding that she was wearing/ sleeping in, and wash and dry it. Then it goes into a plastic bag for a week. Vacuum the house and sanitize. She takes a shower and washes her hair with dish soap (it is powerful enough to release the glue that holds the nits) Dawn is the best, but regular dish soap works. Then she conditions so her hair is easy to comb through and I blow dry her hair for 10 minutes. Well after her hair has dried. (The extreme heat kills the lice and the babies inside the nits) by the end of the first day she has no more lice, but to be safe I repeat this process for 3 days. Works every time! Hope it helps.
