I too have been searching for a natural remedy to rid my 2 cats of fleas. I tried the Vinegar and some home remedies, but none of them worked for me. I refuse to put any pesticides or chemicals on my pets because they are really harmful to them, and my cats have had bad reactions to them. I will not mention brand names, but I finally found success with a store bought product. Go to your pet store and look for a natural flea powder or spray containing natural oils (peppermint, cloves, cinnamon, thyme, lemon, etc.)that will kill fleas. They are more expensive, but are non toxic to humans and pets and WORK GREAT!
My girls are no longer biting & scratching. Be sure to spray or sprinkle the powder over your entire house as well. My cats smell like TEA BAGS but are no longer FLEA BAGS!!! Please do not put poison on your pets. Find a natural remedy.

I have been using this dawn dish soap method for about a week now and havent seen the results that most are saying that they have.I have sprayed and resprayed areas over and over and still have them.Maybe I should use bleach water instead bec ause I think the people posting and saying that dawn dish soap kills fleas are represenitives for dawn and are using this flea killing campaign as a means to sell more of it.

Well it worked for me, not only with the dawn, but with other dish detergents. However, I didn't spray them, rather I soaked them in a container and rubbed the solution all over them. You should see them die almost instantly. This isn't a repellent, if there's any fleas around chances are your pet will have fleas again.

I used the dawn method late last night on my white long haired cat. Today, I have seen her scratch once, compared to continuous scratching. She has almost 100% relief from all the suffering she was going through. I have seen only 1 or 2 live fleas on her at this point, she was heavily infested. I will give her another dawn bath in a week probably. I have also been spraying with the vinegar/water mix around the floor and furniture. I don't know the results of that yet. But comparing the dawn to using flea shampoo, dawn wins hands down.

Just used the remedy on my dog and it really works. I wanted to try a home remedy that didn't have harsh chemicals and I was shocked to see the detergent work so quickly! THANKS FOR THE TIP!!!
