    I just tried the baby powder on my cat, I was careful to not let near her face. I have done it all up to this point, flea meds, sprays and shampoos (my cat hates baths)
    So I put the powder in my hand and rubbed it into the cats fur, she actually liked being rubbed and since there was no water involved she was very calm.
    I let the powder sit for 5 minutes and then used my flea comb to comb it all out .. IT WORKED PEOPLE 😁
    I put out a white piece of paper and couldn't believe the dead fleas I combed off her!!
    I wish I found this home remedy b4 spending over $1,000 on so much expensive crap that didn't work.
    My cat is absolutely fine and even seems happier than I've seen her in months, thank you for this extremely helpful homemade remedy.
    I intend on redoing the same thing again in 4-5 days incase I missed any eggs that may hatch.
    Being careful not to let my cat breathe in any of the powder, this is the best yet.

    wash your fur baby with dawn dish washing liquid, the original blue one. it kills fleas better than flea shampoos, and can be used on very young puppies since most flea shampoos are too harsh for puppies under 12 weeks old. also, if you have carpeting or area rugs, sprinkle baby powder onto your rugs and brush it in. let it set for a few hours, or over night and vacuum . repeat this process for several days in case the fleas have laid eggs.

    use johnsons baby powders for the simple fact they are the best. some other powders can be gritty. johnsons is very powdery, for a lack of a better term.

    i dont use dog shampoos on my dogs if i dont have to. the best thing for them is using dawn dish washing liquid, the original blue one. its not harmful to the fur babies, but dont get it in their eyes, as it would burn, but it does kill fleas. just wash in warm water and lather up and and wash well, then rinse well. the baby powders work well also. i have been using them for a few years.

    For the yard, go to your local feed store and get cedar granules. Put them in a spreader and spread over your yard. You can do it by hand also.

    I put baby powder on the dog on the couch on the bed lol. I even purchased a flea trap from Ace Hardare that has a night light and sticky paper. The fleas are attracted to the light but get stuck on the sticky paper. I have to change it every 30 days

    Do NOT use Baby Powder on cats!

    Talcum powder, made from the mineral talc, is the primary ingredient in
    baby powder, many adult topical powders and some pet grooming products.
    If inhaled or swallowed, talcum powder can poison a cat. Meanwhile, some
    studies link talcum powder and cancer.

    Also,
    If you use Borax Laundry Additive (NOT Boric Acid! Boric Acid is a
    completely different chemical) to kill fleas in your carpeting, it is
    advised to keep your cats away from it. Cats are highly sensitive to
    powders they might breath in and also can get very sick or die. Do NOT
    put Borax on your Cats or Dogs.
