Dog Shampoo

Now that spring is approaching, we’ve had some spring showers that have left our dogs (and our house) a bit smelly at times. This 3 ingredient homemade dog shampoo recipe is SO easy to make, cleans even the dirtiest of dogs, and best of all, kills fleas. 

3 ingredient Homemade Dog Shampoo that kills fleas! Even if your dog doesn't have fleas, the ingredients will deodorize and remove all dirt and grime off of a dirty dog.

Our little white fluffy dog, Lola, smells and feels so good after her bath:) I love an inexpensive homemade alternative to products that we use regularly. Store bought dog shampoos can be very pricey and a dog bath costs at least $20 at our local groomer. This homemade dog shampoo recipe will only cost a few dollars to make!

How to Make a Dog Shampoo that Kills Fleas

  2. Prepare a warm bath for your dog.
  3. Let the dog soak so that all of his/her hair is completely wet.
  4. Apply the shampoo and lather the dog. Be careful to avoid getting the shampoo in their eyes or mouth.
  5. Scrub well where fleas are hiding.
  6. When you see dead fleas in the water, it’s time to rinse the soap out.
  7. Repeat the washing and rinsing process until you see no more fleas in the tub when you rinse, paying close attention to their head because fleas will try to escape there.
