DOGS and CATS
For those who are looking for something natural to use on your pets when letting them out or taking them out for exercise. I have it from a pretty reliable source that the following recipe works well for dogs or cats.
8 oz. - Apple cider vinager
4 oz. warm water
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. baking soda
shake well in spray bottle
Spray pet well. Don't forget under belly.
I don't have pets so good luck and have fun.
