I travel with my baby to work each day & I’ve just returned with my dog from the vet who claims he has a bad flea infestation since being groomed 2 weeks ago. I am now concerned the fleas will be in my car, in my baby’s car seat etc. How can I safely (with no toxicity) remove the fleas from my car including the upholstery & my baby’s car seat?

    First things first: if your dog has fleas, you need to get rid of them off of his body so he isn’t spreading them all over the house and every where else. Once this is done, you can get rid of fleas by vacuuming and steam cleaning the upholstery in the car. Use the vacuum at the car wash so you aren’t bringing them into your house in the vacuum bag. Clean the whole car, seats and floors with a carpet shampooer. I’d probably do the same thing in your house as well to make sure there isn’t any fleas in the house. The baby’s seat should come apart and you can wash the cover. If not, clean it with the carpet cleaner when you clean the rest of the car.
