Fleas are small parasites that are commonly found on animals causing a constant itch to the animal. Fleas not only are an irritant to your dog, but can actually carry diseases and transmit them to your pet. One of the most efficient and safest way to rid your home and your animal of the pests is to mix equal parts of water and rubbing alcohol and apply to your pets and your furniture.

The rubbing alcohol dissolves the insects cells, while also being a desiccant (drying agent) and will kill the fleas by drying them out from the inside out.
