Special spray for head lice
People who have been afflicted with head lice in their family may need a rather special spring cleaning which includes the use of a special spray to prevent re-infestation.
A product that has been found to be effective is called R&C Spray. It is recommended for use on mattresses, upholstered furniture and other objects which cannot be laundered or dry cleaned. R&C Spray is reported to eliminate both the lice and their eggs.
Sporadic outbreaks of head lice continue to plague communities all over the country. In recent years affluent city areas as well as deprived communities are equally affected. Prescription medications will control the lice but re-infestation is likely to occur when the sources of contamination are not eliminated.
