** 71-93 Animal Uses
71. It’s a great insect repellent for your pet. (As recommended in “Outdoor Life” and “Field and Stream”)
72. Mix 5 parts water, 1 part SSS and mist on animals. Brushing it in makes their coats gleam and keeps insects off so the animals don’t fidget in the show ring.
73. Mix in your pet’s bath water. It takes the fleas off of them…and in between spray them with the same mixture as in #2 to help keep them off.
74. Rub on your hands before and after working with your pets and farm animals. It will remove the strong smells.
75. Black Fly Spray For Dogs: Use as a spray or a dip. 1 cup SSS, 1/2 cup liquid detergent and 3 gallons of water.
76. For dogs dry skin mix 1 tablespoon of SSS per gallon of water and use as an after bath rinse. Or spritz your pet’s coat once per week.
77. If your dog should get tar or asphalt on the pads of their feet rub on SSS and then wipe off.
78. Flea Bath: Use a flea and tick shampoo. Rinse, rinse, rinse so no soap residue is left. Follow with final rinse of 2 gallons of water mixed with flea dip and 1 capful of SSS. The SSS helps replace the oils lost in bathing and has the added benefit of repelling insects.
79. Flea Repellent: Avon’s SSS Bath Oil. 1-1/2 ounces per gallon of water; used as a sponge-on dip (or as a spritz) has been tested and proven to have significant, but not complete, flea-repellent activity for a 6-day period. It should help those dry coats, too.
80. Does anyone use the Avon SSS bath oil on his or her chows? Chows have very dry and flaky skin. Helps with dandruff and itchiness and makes hair shiny and smooth. It also serves as a great flea and tick protector. Use it about twice a month and just spray it on them.
81. Use on horses and dogs when necessary. 1-cup Avon SSS bath oil 1-cup white vinegar 1-cup (or more) water 5 cc of essential oil of citronella (from the health food store NOT the type you burn to keep insects away that is available in a drug store) Mix in a spray bottle. Straight SSS works well for mosquito?s too but really makes your dog greasy.
82. (Barns) Use of an inexpensive fly control spray or a diluted mix of Avon SSS in water can be sprayed on barn walls and floor to discourage insects from hanging around or to eliminate them before putting in the new bedding. As time permits, and if you can keep your goats out of the barn for a few hours – let the barn stand and air out before re-filling with bedding.
83. Rub on your hands before and after working with pets and farm animals, takes away pet odor.
84. Avon’s SSS bath oil massaged directly into the skin of your Rottweiler acts not only as a successful repellant and makes their dogs smell good but helps prevent drying and itchy skin.
85. A natural way to help cats with flea problems and flea allergies is to rub Skin So Soft into the skin. Once a bug, always a bug. Fleas don’t like it either! Spread the word!
86. Cats: SSS IS SAFE FOR FUR LICKING ——-plus is safe as long as it is the one without sunscreen.
87. Don’t overuse the SSS. I just use the lotion, and rub it into the skin, not more than every few days. My cat’s sensitive and we’re being careful. Common sense is the rule. Sprinkling Yeast on the cat food helps, too. My cat’s fur is medium-length; he’s part Persian, and he’s doing fine, no ill effects from the SSS. You can check with your vet to be sure if it’s okay.
USES FOR HORSES
88. SSS can be used as a hoof polish. This will put a nice shine to the hoof without drying it. The farrier’s wife will appreciate this one!
89. SSS can be used as a muzzle, eye, and ear enhancer. Generally we used baby oil but it was so messy. I tried SSS and it works great and still helps keep bugs away.
90. I have a show mare that has allergies and also gets dry skin very easily so I started giving her baths in SSS. What I do is bathe her like normal and then I put a capful of SSS in a 5-gallon bucket of warm water and sponge this all over her. Her hair coat dries silky soft and she quits itching. Works for her.
91. The bug guard towelettes we had last summer work great on the horse’s ears and around their eyes.
92. When I have to band (braid) their manes I use the Techniques Oil Sheen. It seems to help hold the braids a lot better and they don’t try to rub them out.
93. The dry end serum works great in their tails as a detangler. Everything I have mentioned here I use faithfully on our show horses. The products are a heck of a lot cheaper than actual horse products. People see me using these products at the horse shows and start inquiring about them. I usually let them take my bottles and try them on their horses at the show, which usually ends up in a sale for me.
