I don’t think that Dr. Bronner’s is too effective in the laundry, but it seems to help with my hair. Make sure to clean your washer and dryer because collembola may be living in both and contaminating the laundry. Clean the dryer with an ammonia and windex mixture, and run the washer every once in awhile with a lot of bleach.
Dr. Bronner’s Peppermint Shampoo July 7, 2012
I tried out this shampoo, and so far it is pretty effective for hair. I’m still experimenting with it in the laundry and on the body. I put half a cup in a small load with a pair of jeans that I was having trouble with, and it reduced the problem but did not eliminate it. I have also tried it on my body following the instructions on the bottle, and it seemed to help. Once I use it some more, I will make an update. It is definitely worth ordering though, and it’s not too expensive.
Get Rid of Your Carpet! July 3, 2012
I want to emphasize the need to get rid of your household carpet. Carpet removal will provide immense relief from collembola. If it is too expensive for you to replace the floor with laminate, seal the wooden underfloor thickly with polyurethane and caulk. The, clean with a solution of ammonia and windex everyday. Depending on the strength of infestation, you made need to clean the walls.
