FLEA FIGHTER FINGERS
This dough is very easy to handle. It makes a nice, dark biscuit and helps your pet repel fleas because of the presence of brewerÂ’s yeast. Makes about 100 small cookies.
2 beef bouilon cubes ( I add 4 to combat the brewerÂ’s yeast)
1 3/4 cups boiling water
1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
1 cup rye flour
One bar FelsNaptha Soap (Cut into thirds)
1/2 cup Arm and Hammer Washing soda
1/2 cup 20 Mule Team Borax
Grate 1/3 bar of Soap into a sauce pan. Add 6 cups of water, heat and stir until soap is all melted. Remove from heat and pour 4 cups hot tap water into the pan. Stir.
Add 1/2 cup of washing soda and 1/2 cup Borax to the pan and mix well.
