Many moons ago I had a kennel and we used Downy Fabric softener as a final rinse for dogs with a persistent itch. Whether it was allergies, flea bites or whatever- we washed the dog and rinsed it with a diluted solution of Downy and the itch was gone. If you were to touch your lip with downy on your finger, your lip would get numb. BTW- it was great on people insect bites too! Just a dab and the itch was gone.
The Downy now days lost that quality. There are many downy products now too so I am not sure if it [the original product] is still even out there.
I have a dog now that has gotten in fire ants many times and is miserable. The vet has her on steroids and I am not happy with that. The ant bites are long gone but she continues to itch. Does anyone have a suggestion?
Does anyone have any idea where I can find the ORIGINAL Downy?
