Make a very strong solution of salt dissolved in really hot water in a large white bowl or dish pan. Soak your head for about 5 minutes, pouring the solution through your hair to get completely soaked. You can see the lice in the water. Wash your hair with dawn dish liquid, rinse with a 1/2 white vinegar 1/2 water mixture and pour through the hair. Apply conditioner and leave it in. Put on a shower cap or use plastic wrap and leave on at least an hour. Comb through your hair with a lice comb cleaning it out often with an old tooth brush, placing the material on to a white paper towel or tissues. After you have combed every inch of your hair, wash with your regular shampoo with a few drops of oil of peppermint added. Condition as usual and and towel dry. Comb out with a wide toothed comb and dry with a hair dryer set on hot. Repeat in 7 days.

Be sure to wash your bed linens and sweep your furniture and floors. Wash your laundry in the hottest water possible and dry in a dryer. After the load has dried, reset the dryer and repeat the drying cycle. Spray back packs with rubbing alcohol and let them air dry. I suggest that you check for lice every 3 days as long as anyone in the family goes to day care, school, church, camp, or another home.
