oh god how i wish this was actually a dream

We have a maid who cleans and sweeps and dusts and airs out and all of that three times a week.
The sheets get changed at least once a week.
We wash our clothes with almost every wearing.
We each wash our own bodies, separately of course, at least once a day.
We don't have any pets.

And yet.

And ... yet

we have... fleas.

I am itchy.

i found out that my cat had fleas last fall when i started getting flea bites. i vacuumed the hell out of everything numerous times and threw all my bedding in the wash. vacuum your mattress and couch and drapes and anything upholstered too. and if they have flea bombs in africa you could use one of those, just wash your dishes really well afterwards. i didn't use a flea bomb because ironically they aren't safe for pets.

katie, I TOTALLY blame your mangy mutt for all of this ;-)

Carin, i want nothing more than to just vacuum all the evilness away, but we don't have one, and neither does anyone else i know ;-( We all just have hard floors or else area rugs that just get taken outside for occasional beatings! So far the solution looks like it might be just buying a new mattress and boiling everything else! POOEY!

I haven't figured out yet if flea bombs are available, i hope they are!

Poors!, I wonder how can you do it to survive in these conditions!...

Yeah, to have a vacuum in Uganda might be hard... what about if you wash the floor with chlorine??. That works for me ;) but use very, very, VERY hard chlorine, almost 100%. Be careful with fabric close to the floor or even you own feet.
