How To Use Salt To Keep Fleas Out Of Your Home
Fleas have an extreme vulnerability to anything with moisture-zapping qualities, which can badly damage their exoskeletons. One very effective flea-killing tool is table salt.
To get rid of fleas, grind salt into a fine powder and thoroughly rub it into any infected fabrics. Apply it evenly over carpeting and furniture and leave it on for 12-48 hours.
Next, vacuum all the salt out of the carpet or furniture and empty the vacuum outdoors. Otherwise, any live fleas you vacuum up will climb back out.
Flea eggs may still survive, since the salt has to make contact with fleas' exoskeletons to work. Do a salt treatment at least once every 1-2 weeks after your first one.
