To make your homemade flea spray, you’ll need white vinegar or apple cider vinegar.
Either is fine, though some people feel their pet prefers the scent of apple cider vinegar.
Creating your flea spray is as simple as diluting the vinegar with water.
Some people recommend mixing equal parts vinegar and water.
Can I spray my dog with vinegar and water?
We recommend mixing 1 part apple cider vinegar and 1 part filtered water into a spray bottle. Dog owners can spray the mixture directly onto the dog’s coat before going outside. Again, fleas hate the acidity of the ACV and will jump straight off of the dog’s coat.

Is Vinegar safe for dogs to smell?
Vinegar is also a great rinse after you bathe your dog to keep him from smelling like wet fur. While vinegar has a strong smell initially, it dissipates quickly leaving a fresh clean scent. You can use vinegar to clean up accidents on floors and carpeting. Vinegar will clean up pet stains and odors quickly and easily.
