Thank you kindly.

The voice of reason

I literally skimmed thru all the hundreds of comments and realized most people were lazily posting their emails instead of doing some research and reading the comments that INCLUDED the needed measurements. Luckily, I copied them to evernote and will gladly re post the best variations on the mixture that I found.(not that I expect anyone to read this...)

********************
8 oz. apple cider vinegar
4 oz. warm water
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt

I mixed the dry ingredients and slowly added them to the vinegar/water solution. Be very careful though, they will have a reaction. (In fact, I kept adding until it started to bubble out of my spray bottle).

I then followed the suggestion and put my dog in the bathtup and misted the mixture all over her and let it set. I sprayed my hand and then wiped it around her little face, because I noticed the fleas ran to wherever they could to get away from the spray. Be very careful not to get in the eyes.

I then rinsed it off and then shampooed her with Dawn.

This is the second time in a week I've done this - (the first time I tried a 50/50 water & vinegar solution and a 1/3 tsp mixture of each of the dry ingredients. There was definitely success the first time, but even more the second time. Today there were several dead fleas in the bathtub.

I used this same mixture and sprayed her collar and pet bed.

Based on another recommendation for the carpets, we used a 50/50 solution of baking soda and salt and let it set for a day or two before vacuuming it up. It's ok if it gets tracked in the house because it just spreads it out. and the salt dehydrates the fleas.

Hope you all have some success.

I did this yesterday. Didnt know the mixture but had to try. In a regular size spray bottle I covered the bottom with salt about a inch deep. About 2 inches of baking soda and 16 oz of apple cider vinegar. I used the entire bottle on Barney. He is 70 pounds. Left on for 10 minutes and bathed him with dawn and it was a instant fix. I have spent a couple hundred dollars this yr and nothing has worked. I wish I would have tried this sooner.


THERE ARE DIFFERENT VARIATIONS OF THIS RECIPE...IT IS ALL NATURAL, SO SAFE FOR DOGS. BUY AN EMPTY SPRAY BOTTLE..
PUT 1/2 A TBSP OF SALT
2 TBSP BAKING SODA
DO A 60/40 RATIO OF APPLE CIDER VINEGAR TO WARM WATER
SHAKE IT UP, APPLY TO DOG AND LET SIT FOR A COUPLE MINS TO 10 MINS DEPENDING HOW BAD DOG HAS THEM...DO NOT LET THIS GET INTO DOGS EYES. RINSE OFF DOG.
