Tamara from Saint Michaels, Maryland writes,

Does Archer effectiveness break down on dog beds after washing them in the laundry?

I just bought Archer to address an indoor flea problem. I will apply to dog beds but want to ensure it will still be effective if I launder them in water/soap a few times over the next several months. And, if I apply it to wood floors, will Archer still be effective after I've cleaned them with water/soap based products? Thank you.


If you wash an item with soap and water that has been treated with Archer you will be washing away the product as well and will need to reapply it. It is recommended that you wash the items or areas first, then spray Archer and let it sit in place for at least two weeks before you wash it away.
