Default Homemade flea repellent.

This works well to keep fleas at bay. You can even add a few drops to your dogs shampoo.

Mix in a spray bottle.
2 quarts of water.
10 drops of tea tree oil.
1 teaspoon of rubbing alcohol.

Shake each time you use it.
Spray around dog houses beds and even on carpet in moderation. Be prepared to vacuum because this makes the fleas jump and run.

For a dogs bath use one cup of this mixture. I make my own dog soap with this mix. If you do not make soap you can pour a cup of this over the dogs back then lather her up with regular dog soap. If you make your own soaps you can add one cup of this to the mix per every 10- 4oz. bars.
