I imagine this would help treat carpets if lice are a problem. Yes, but it must be used correctly and usually in combination with common table salt. The reason this combination is so effective as a weapon against flea infestation is that both work together to dehydrate fleas, including eggs and larvae. The application process is similar to that of baking soda, but check out my article which is specifically about using salt to kill fleas (in the “fleas” category at the top).
One of the reasons I want to get rid of the carpet is because I think it's disgusting and, in my opinion, contains unpleasant odors. The old expression “during the night” is very literal here when used on carpets, upholstered furniture and wooden floors, as I'll explain. Without the use of harsh chemicals, this kills fleas and ticks without harming anyone else in the household. You can get rid of fleas from your pets directly by putting a sock in the dust and then patting them, as if it were a puff of gunpowder.
Please tell me where to get this as soon as possible. I just received a new rug and I don't want to put anything but something good on it. In addition, the alkaline properties of the powder will neutralize acidic odors and leave carpets with an enchanting scent. You can do it overnight, and in the morning, you can vacuum all the dead, dry fleas off the carpet.
The heavier grains of salt fall further down your pet's coat, into the pile of carpets and into those little corners where fleas like to hide.
