Need a quick way to get rid of those pesky fleas that are making your poor furry friend miserable? Instead of shaving them bald, you can get rid of these horrible little buggers using ordinary dish soap.

The reason why this tip works is because the dish soap is effective in destroying the fleas' exoskeletons, killing them within minutes. A flea comb could also help you to find and dispose of any of their leftover flea corpses.  Once done, be sure to give your pet a proper bath with good shampoo to prevent their skin from drying out.

Do note that dish soap isn't meant to be a replacement for actual flea prevention medicine. So if this doesn't fix your flea problem, then you should probably call a vet.
