  1. It's a great insect repellent for your pet. (as recommended in "Outdoor Life" and "Field and Stream")

  3. Mix in your pet's bath water to remove fleas and in between spray them with the same mixture as above to help keep them at bay.
  4. Rub on your hands before and after working with your pets and farm animals. It will remove the strong smells.
  5. 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.
  6. For dog's 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.
  7. If your dog should get tar or asphalt on the pads of their feet rub on SSS and then wipe off.
  8. Flea Bath: Use a flea and tick shampoo. Rinse so no soap residue is left. Follow with a 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.
  9. Flea Repellent: Avon's Skin So Soft 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.
  10. Chow Dogs. Many chows have very dry and flaky skin.  The SSS can help dandruff and itchiness and make hair shiny and smooth. It also serves as a great flea and tick protector.
  11. Another Insect Repellent Recipe for Pets: 1 cup Avon Skin So Soft 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 mosquitoes too but really makes your dog greasy.
  12. Barns. Use of an inexpensive fly control spray or a diluted mix of Avon Skin- So-Soft 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.
  13. Rub on your hands before and after working with pets and farm animals, takes away pet odor.
  14. A natural way to help cats with flea problems and flea allergies is to rub Skin So Soft into the skin. Fleas don't like it!
  15. Cats: SSS IS SAFE FOR FUR LICKING -------The SSS plus is safe as long as it is the one without sunscreen.
  16. Pet’s with Sensitive Skin: Don't overuse the SSS. Just use the lotion, and rub it into the skin, not more than every few days.
  17. SSS can be used as a hoof polish. Put’s a nice shine to the hoof without drying it. The farrier's wife will appreciate this one!
  18. SSS can be used on pet accessories such as collars to shine them up.
