Make sure to vacuum EVERYWHERE in the house. Collect everything that cannot be vacuumed and wash it using the hottest setting.

Mix the vinegar, water, lemon juice and witch hazel in the sprayer bottle. Spray your carpets, furniture, pet bedding, window sills, floors, every nook and corner of your house. Do this daily for at least 2-7 days depending upon how bad is the flea infestation in your home.

Salt Remedy

Best Home Remedies for Removing Fleas

Salt becomes a dehydration agent for fleas and dries out their bodies.

Make sure the salt is ground to a fine salt powder. Sprinkle the salt over your carpets in each room. The salt should cover the area evenly. Leave for 12 hours (or 48 if there is a large infestation). Vacuum after 1-2 days.

Diatomaceous Earth

Make sure you get the food grade Diatomaceous Earth which is non-toxic to human beings and animals. Wash off everything that you can’t vacuum, with hot water in your washer. Sprinkle the DE on your carpets, pet beddings etc. Leave it on these areas for 12-48 hours. Vacuum away all the powder and remember to discard the vacuum bag.
