(There is a pool-grade that is used in swimming pool filters, but it is not safe for home applications.)

    We’re doing this at home, that natural and inexpensive way of controlling fleas.

Putting salt on fleas infected areas of our home, kills those fleas off. I might try using the other ways listed here, I’m curious about using banana peels. :)
