If you have pets living in your home, you may need to rid your home of fleas occasionally. Have you ever walked into your living room and suddenly had your ankles covered in biting fleas? That is how you know that a flea infestation has gotten out of hand in your carpet. You may be tempted to throw the pets outside forever. Before you do try these simple steps to rid your home of fleas and prevent a future flea infestation.
A flea infestation should be treated promptly because they can carry parasites such as tape worms. It is also advised to talk to your veterinarian after the home is rid of fleas about worming your pets.
Bathe your horse, dog, cat, or wash your own hair with our CEDAR-AL cedar oil pet shampoo to ward off insects. First wet hair or fur with warm water, and with a small amount of the shampoo, lather the hair or fur, making sure the suds penetrate to the skin. Keep soap away from eyes, mouth, and nose. For animals, shampoo the entire body, legs, and feet. Let stand for 2 minutes. Rinse thoroughly. For humans repeat as necessary; for animals repeat every two weeks or as necessary.
For our kitties we wash them with our pet shampoo, see Fluke's photo, our youngest, on the front of the website, and treat the house with the cedar oil spray.
Wait until your horse, dog, goat or cattle is thoroughly dry, then spray them lightly with the CEDAR-AL cedar oil in a well-ventilated area, being careful of the eyes, mouth, and nose. Rub the oil into the fur down to the skin of the entire body, legs, and feet. Repeat every two weeks or as necessary.
For dogs under 20lb SPRAY THE OIL LIGHTLY ON A CLOTH AND THEN RUB THE PET DOWN FROM NECK TO TAIL.
If your horses roll all over after you bathe them with other shampoos, try our CEDAR-AL cedar oil shampoo and they will not dirty themselves after their shower.
Bathe your pet or wash your own hair with CEDAR-AL cedar oil pet shampoo to ward off insects. Wait until thoroughly dry, and then spray you or your pet lightly with the cedar oil in a well-ventilated area, being careful of the eyes, mouth, and nose.

If irritation develops on skin, discontinue use.
Do not spray on finished wood.

The cleaning methods listed below can be used for any minor insect infestation, fleas, tics, bedbugs, spiders, etc, or prevention of one. A major infestation will, unfortunately, require a full chemical treatment but then a natural preventative solution, as listed below, can be used thereafter. Be sure to treat your pets as well as they are another vessel by which insects find their way into your home.
AGAIN: IF YOU ARE ALLERGIC TO CEDAR, DO NOT USE IT ON YOU!
The first control strategy for all insects is to modify the area surrounding a house.

How To Use TRIPLE ACTION PLUS:
SHAKE WELL Prior to use
Because TRIPLE ACTION PLUS' technologically advanced synergistic blend of 200 billion adapted organisms will settle to the bottom of your bottle in between each use, it is VERY IMPORTANT to shake your bottle well before EACH use for the product to do its job effectively.
TRIPLE ACTION PLUS’s unique formula gives you power and versatility beyond other products. And it’s easy to use. Shake well before each use and then just point and spray TRIPLE ACTION PLUS on any water safe fabric where there is an odor or stain problem, not into the air, for complete odor control and stain removal.
Because TRIPLE ACTION PLUS kills odor causing bacteria on contact, spray directly into the cat litter box and the surrounding area for immediate odor relief.
Keep a bottle by the commode and spray directly into the toilet and the surrounding area for instant freshness.
Freshen your home naturally. Do you have doggy odor in your home? Do your pets sit their butts on your furniture? Lightly spray your furniture, carpets, drapes, pet beds etc with TRIPLE ACTION PLUS for complete odor control.
For most spills including beverages, pet stains, hairballs, vomit, urine, and other wet spills, first blot excess fluid, wet the area with TRIPLE ACTION PLUS, and allow to stand. Blot the stain with paper towels and reapply only if necessary. **
When cleaning your carpets, in addition to your cleaning solution, add 4 oz. of TRIPLE ACTION PLUS to the clean water tank of your carpet cleaning machine. If after running the cleaning machine you find a hard to clean spot, follow the directions above, using a soft bristle brush carefully brush the spot, and then run the machine over it again.
Don’t have time to clean right away? Not a problem, TRIPLE ACTION PLUS will clean and deodorize on its own! Spray over stain thoroughly and leave it alone. Special ingredients actually consume the spill or stain and leave a clean, fresh scent. No residues to re soil, just water and carbon dioxide, just like your breath. It is fast, simple and safe for use around children, pets and plants. Use on any washable fabric or surface.
If your cats are having a turf war and marking territory, ie your furniture, bedding, etc., first clean the furniture with our TRIPLE ACTION PLUS, making sure to sop up as much of the urine as possible ** and launder what can be removed adding an ounce of the TAP to the wash, and then spray the area until saturated with the TRIPLE ACTION PLUS, letting it completely dry. When dry, spray the area with cedar oil spray, trust us, they won't revisit that spot.
To remove fresh stains with biological spills, ie blood, breast milk, spit up, etc from clothing, first, pretreat the spill with TRIPLE ACTION PLUS, then add an ounce of the TAP to the laundry and wash as usual.
Don’t just mask odors, eliminate them at their source (and take the stains with it)
Like most medicines and chemicals, keep out of reach of children.
TRIPLE ACTION PLUS does not contain cedar oil.
How To Use CEDAR-AL Cedar Oil Carpet Shampoo:
To obtain the best results, vacuum the carpet or upholstery thoroughly to remove all loose dirt particles. For spot cleaning use our Triple Action Plus.
The approximate square footage 4 oz of our carpet shampoo, depending on the size of the cleaning machine you will use, see usage instructions below, will cover is 400 – 500 square feet or a LDH (living room, dining room, hallway).
It all depends upon how much the operator of the cleaning machine uses when they are cleaning. There are 12 oz in 1 bottle of our carpet shampoo, or enough for 4 applications when used with a machine with a 5 gallon tank.
We suggest not to over saturate your rug when cleaning as, with any kind of rug cleaning solution, it will leave a buildup resulting in re-soiling of your carpets faster. If you find that a heavy traffic area didn’t come quit as clean as you like the first time around, wait the minimum of one full day the best would be a week and then clean the area for a second time.
Please keep in mind that cleaning and treating your carpets with our cedar oil is only part of the battle. For best pest control we recommend to bathe your pets with our cedar oil pet shampoo and treat your home with our cedar oil spray year round, please read more about these products, the benefits of each (listed under each product) and how to use them, listed above.
For best results use an anti-foam emulsion to control excess sudsing. Put the anti-foam emulsion in the RECOVERY TANK not in with the cleaning solution. Always remove any remaining solution from equipment, clean and flush complete system with clear water. CEDAR-AL Cedar Oil Carpet Shampoo contains no harsh chemicals or alkalis which may leave deposits in your expensive equipment. CEDAR-AL Cedar Oil Carpet Shampoo is biodegradable and environmentally safe.
Fill your carpet shampooer with CEDAR-AL Cedar Oil Carpet Shampoo following your portable extractor machine, Hoover, Bissell, Commercial, etc, manufacture instructions. Fill the water reservoir as usual.
PORTABLE EXTRACTORS: (Hoover, Bissell, Commercial, etc.)
Mix 2-4 ounces, depending on the amount of cleaning required, of CEDAR-AL Cedar Oil Carpet Shampoo with 5 gallons of hot or cold water, OR for heavy cleaning and smaller cleaning tanks, add 2.5 ounces to 1 Gallon of water OR 1.25 ounces to a 1/2 Gallon of water, etc . If extractor is adjustable, set meter to lower quarter. Most machines will have to be set very low. If the metered CEDAR-AL Cedar Oil Carpet Shampoo solution is still too rich at your lowest setting, dilute, again with an equal part of water. Repeat adjustments until optimum cleaning results are obtained.
TRUCK MOUNTED EXTRACTORS:
To make a working concentrate: Add 1 quart of CEDAR-AL Cedar Oil Carpet Shampoo to 5 gallons of warm water. Adjust flow meter to the lower quarter of the range and test the cleaning ability. One quart should make approximately 450 gallons of working solution. Adjust meter until satisfied with cleaning results.
Hydraforce, high pressure: Add 12 ounces per gallon of water.
Hydraforce, low pressure: Add 8 ounces per gallon of water.
Open your windows, turn on fans, and point them into the rooms you have shampooed so the carpet can dry faster and the concentrated cedar oil can ventilate. If you cannot open the windows, use fans and a dehumidifier. Please read Safety Study to understand why this step is important.
Vacuum the carpet thoroughly once it has dried completely overlapping each pass with the vacuum by at least two-inches.
PRODUCT CONTAINS CEDAR OIL
Back in the early 80’s Glen Orr was taking a leisurely lunch break in a lumber yard when he saw a deer rolling in a pile of cedar chips. Curious, he asked his boss if he knew why the deer was doing this. He learned that deer instinctively know that cedar keeps off tics and fleas off, and are known to roll on fallen cedar trees for this reason.
Glen set about extracting cedar oil from the Northwestern Red Cedar tree by putting shavings into a steam distiller made from an old hot water heater. He worked closely with a chemist from a lab in Seattle to blend the extracted oil with water to make it safe to use on humans and pets, while keeping it strong enough to be an effective natural bug repellent. The chemist also blended the cedar oil in a natural baby shampoo formula and it became as popular as the cedar oil. In 1985 CEDAR-AL, Scandinavian for cedar oil, was born. The same lumber yard and laboratory still work together to provide CEDAR-AL customers with the same cedar oil they have come to love.
Eddie Bauer stocked CEDAR-AL cedar oil and pet shampoo on every shelf of every one of their stores for over a decade, until they discontinued most of their outdoor items to become a clothier instead. Glen Orr walked off into the woods never to be heard from again. His partner, Roberto Martinez was left holding the remnants of Glen’s dream.
CEDAR-AL remained dormant until 2005 when Roberto met, fell in love, and married Elise Crawford. With her children nearly grown, she gladly hung up her nurse’s cap and worked alongside Roberto to nurture CEDAR-AL back to life. Since then, a new label was created for CEDAR-AL, two new products have come on board, cedar oil carpet shampoo and an enzyme cleaner, Triple Action Plus, and an online store was created. When a photo of the original label was posted on the website, former Eddie Bauer customers flocked to the website, so relieved that CEDAR-AL wasn’t lost to them forever.
"We use the cedar shampoo for our dog and our son's dog. We use the cedar spray for the bedding, small amount under his bedding. Plus I spray in our musty cellar. I also spray around the door ways and windows to help keep bugs away. I spray in my cedar closets to freshen them up also. I put on cotton balls under furniture and in cupboards to freshen those places. It is sprayed on cotton balls and I make little scarves for my pets, with that oil and lavender that I grow to repel fleas when he is playing outside. I use it actually everywhere. Also in my blanket chest to store seasonal clothes and blankets. Soooo much better then moth balls. Spray my screens with it. I love the stuff, as you can see. It is simply a wonderful fresh smell. Some goes in my wash water every once in a while to wash floors also, just a tiny amount. There are many uses for it. I dilute it in a spray bottle with water to spray around my house and closets. So as not to be too strong or irritating to the nose or skin if comes in contact, plus it helps to go further for me as I do use it a lot!!! Thank you for your wonderful products. I always tell people about you, keep up great smelling products!"
