We are going to try this today. Hope it works.
    A regular heat rash is caused by hot sweat trapped under the skin instead of getting excreted out the body. This could be because of excessive sweating (sweat layer blocks the rest of the sweat from coming out) or clothing constricting the evaporation of sweat or dirt blocking the ducts. A fungal rash is completely different and would look a bit different than a regular heat rash although it usually shows itself in the same places that heat rash usually shows up.

    A regular heat rash can be prevented/minimized with powdering with corn starch... okay, okay, it's what Filipinos do. And as I've grown up with heat rash and corn starch, I know it works on regular occurrences (there's excessive occurrences too that would require medical intervention).

    I use Dyson and swiffer wetjet on my laminate floors. But I actually don't buy the wetjet refills. I just refill the bottle that came with the original wetjet over and over and over with.... yep... water with a bit of vinegar and with a dash of dish soap and a dash of murphy oil. I opened the bottle by sticking it under hot water for a minute. I still splurge on the paper things that go on the bottom of the wetjet. It is so much easier and faster than using a regular mop that gets the floor too wet and that spreads the dirt around and that I had to rinse and rinse. The wetjet gets the job done much faster and dries quicker so the laminate doesn't bubble. And then, I got these slippers at Walmart that is a shammy mop underneath, so I polish the floors as I walk around the house.

    We have an iRobot that cleans the upstairs hardwood floors and bedrooms during the day when we are working mainly to get up Bacon's hair. I use a Bona swiffer style mop with the built in sprayer to get up water/slobber spots, and I have a dyson animal for the carpeting downstairs and the stairs.

    I use a swiffer for quick clean up the use the old fashioned rag mops for deep cleaning. I use the swiffer wet jet fluid with the swiffer and when I deep clean I always use bleach first go round and Murphy's oil after that.

    I've always been worried about the chemicals and pets and figured the less i used the better. Especially when the dogs like to lick their feet a lot.

    We ended up finding the cause, it was a shampoo of all things causing the rash. Specifically Suave for oily hair. This was a long time ago and ever since we changed his shampoo and after many remedies and doctor appts that is what it was! he rarely gets one anymore. Only during times of high stress. It could have been a combo of hormones and the shampoo, I think he was about 13 at the time. He's 15 now.
