Can lighter fluid kill lice & how long do you have to leave it on your head?

Not a good choice: Once lice notice an environmental change, they can hibernate without breathing for up to 18 hours.This agent would kill by immersion or inhalation.

There is also ways to lighten your skin on a more permanent basis. ...Read more
