"Not sure about Dawn- but washing up liquid won't kill fleas unless they drown in it."

Dawn kills Box Elder bugs very quickly so I would assume it would kills tiny fleas just as well. I have a huge Box Elder bug problem on my house every year and spraying them with a Dawn solution kills them very quickly. And no, it's not that they are drowning. It needs the Dawn in the water to work.

drawman61: I guess I did. :s

kitteh9lives: Pardon me, I stated that clumsily, my intention was to put the vaccine post as contrast to this one, not as equals. The vaccine one is right on target and needs to be spread, the second half of this one could likely have been written by the "new iOS makes your phone waterproof" people.

Also, this was in no way intended as an attack on you personally kitteh, but "you" as in the shapeless blob that is IAB.

Sorry!

NEVER NEVER NEVER put anything on burns... just hold for a very long time under a tap. Not sure about Dawn- but washing up liquid won't kill fleas unless they drown in it. A few of the others are okay- coke is acidic so it cleans oxidation and limescale - as Brown sauce cleans badly tarnished metal. Thing is, usually specialist cleaners are cheaper and more effective as they are formulated to do so. Soap ( or detergent) abrasion, eucalyptus oil (solvent , acid and alkali- with enzymes for some other stuff. Get a stock of all of the above and you can clean most things

@danari~ The sodium bicarbonate alters the pH of your urine making it more inhospitable to the UTI, which are typically bacterial in nature.

If you pour Muriatic acid drain cleaner and bleach down the drain at the same time, you can gas your entire apartment block with chlorine (chemical weapon of mass destruction). <--- so don't do it.

If you mix bleach and ammonia together, you can use it to fumigate your house.

Yeah drawman61 I don't think Tiredofnicks actually read the entire 'Vaccines' submission.

The one with the key-ring and the pants works.

I'd like to find out the UK equivalent of some of these products.

rubbing alcohol is also a good bug killer. if you buy a quart bottle, a standard sprayer thingee fits the bottle perfectly. i've found it kills pretty much everything with the exception of house flies and spiders. ants will die but more slowly. probably the 409 trick would work well on ants.

You can also use clear fingernail polish to kill chiggers. Just brush over the bite. Since they bore into your skin, they breathe through their backside. The polish will dry and smother them.

Tiredofnicks What was wrong with the Vaccine post?
I really want to hear his one. Especially since you said absolutely NOTHING on that thread.

On these 'life hack' ones, I have no idea if they work or not. I said so in the subtitle. Check it out. Are you seriously suggesting I test everyone of them before I post?

First part - okay, I can get behind most of that, second part (the one that reads like adverts) - WHAT?

First you post the vaccine one yesterday and now you post absolute and utter misinformation like this?

Have known about that Dawn kills fleas for decades.

Had to wash the dog and only had that to wash him with. Afterwards, during a vet visit, I asked a vet about it. He said it's perfectly safe and that they use it to clean oil from birds and other animals. (this was in in the 80's before they made commercials about it).

Regular Alka-seltzer contains 325mg of Aspirin. Neither that nor the citric acid nor the sodium bicarbonate will do anything for an infection.

This is awesome, the hanger one is great I will for sure use that one. Wish I thought about taking photos of my friends long ago, lol.
