    What is the purpose of the salt?

    I have used Dawn dish soap for a s long as I can remember.

    Another good one is plain Ivory dish soap with a couple-three ounces of 10% Permethrin.

    The best method is to be on top of the yard and housing. The dogs that live outside and get wet at times are hard to fight fleas of they are in the area. Most everything for fleas is water soluble and gets 'washed away' with outside living.

    I have also used Permethrin in mineral oil so it sticks but if the dogs are handled you get it all over you...which may help with your fleas too. LOL

    But would like to hear about the salt.

    I think the salt will dry out the fleas exoskeleton. Sort of like Damascus Earth does.

    Supposedly kills their eggs too.
