Tried this once, Then I tried the Borax 1cup, & Peroxide 1cup, hot soak in a bath the other night. No bites, or itching overnight, and I found more smaller (almost microscopic) black specs then usual in the bed, so I believe that helped. Last night I tried Borax 1 cup, & Epsom salts 1 cup, plus 1/8cup of blue Dawn, in a hot soak, & found a lot of microscopic black specs dropping off me as I left the tub! But, I did get a few lingering weak bites,(death knells, I think) just before going to bed, then nothing else all night.Found on the net:
I decided to try this in the hot bath last night, because everything else seemed to be just keeping me status quo. I used 2 cups of borax though, because I'm a big guy, a few minutes in, I decided to add one standard bottle of hydrogen peroxide to see if it would help? I don't know the toxicity of either of these, but there was a lot of white looking microscopic specks of scum in the water as I emptied the tub?(dead bugs?) maybe it's just wishful thinking? Anyway, had a good night's sleep (no bites, or crawling) and my skin looks, & feels so good this morning, better then it has in a long time! Especially my hands. I think I'm gonna try the directions here for an all purpose, & laundry soap. Just passing this along, hope it helps. Mike
Next, I'm gonna try a hot bath with a pint, & 1/2, of white vinegar tonight, because I read it's good for the skin, plus, antiseptic, & antibacterial as well.
