RID YOUR DOG OF FLEAS RECIPE; Ingredients: 1 cup Dawn dish detergent (for smell and fleas) 1 cup white distilled vinegar 1 quart water Mix it all together! That's it! Be careful not to get it in your dog's eyes though, it will burn. I literally saw the fleas falling off him, dead, when I was rinsing him off. Love love love it. I don't think I'll ever buy dog shampoo again! Remember to start at the neck so the fleas will not run to the face.
Peppermint (Mentha piperita) Around the home, you can spray diluted peppermint oil into stinky shoes and boots to eliminate odors, and add a teaspoon of the EO to floor-washing water to add fresh scent, as well as antibacterial properties. Placing a few drops of peppermint oil around cracks in walls will also deter rodents and spiders: they can’t stand the scent of it.
