Normal puwing din sis, very fine naman ang particles ng DE, ang masakit na puwing naman kasi is pag medyo malaki yung dust diba? Bihira siguro mangyare yan sa DE kasi super liit ng particles nya. Ang texture nya is parang flour or powdered chalk.

Di ko lang sure sis kung meron sa mga specialty stores kasi ang DE is a raw material, purest form sya, at ang usual na users kasi nito ay yung may livestock. Naghahanap din ako ng local suppliers pero for feeds yung usually nakikita ko. I think for agricultural purposes pa lang ang nareach ng DE sa atin, kaya I doubt na commercially available na sya. Pero malay natin, baka maisipan din nila maglagay kung maintroduce natin sa mga stores tutal may mga organic pet products na rin naman sila diba?

Thanks sis. Found it na. Mas expensive pala yung food grade. I'll try a kilo nga. Most likely sa weekend na since i'm from Pasig pa and meet up points nya is in QC. Nakakahiya at 1k lang kukunin ko. haha

^haha di naman ganun katindi sis, normal puwing lang talaga.

oo nga pwede ipaship yung item. Sa mga nabasa ko, yung brand nya na Perma-Guard USA, yun nga daw yung ok na supplier ng food grade DE, kaya siguro mas mahal because of the quality. tinext ko yung seller, ask ko how much yung 50lbs bag nya, sana mas mura.

50lbs./22.68kgs is 3k daw. So nasa 132pesos lang per kilo. Laking tipid talaga pag by the sack ang kukunin. Pwedeng magshare na lang kung malalapit tayo sa isat isa haha!

Just like any natural method or solution, hindi rin sya talaga fast/automatic cure, kailangan daily daw ang paggawa ng tempura or espasol haha para maachieve yung desired effects. Kung marami kayong dogs at malaki ang area, baka magkulang ang 1 kilo. So kung kaya dagdagan na yung order kasi sayang din yung bayad sa shipping kung biglang kulangin.

naku sis di ko naman ipapangdust sa aso ko, para sa mga sulok sulok lang ng bahay kasi nga may langgam at minsan may langaw :) baka kasi ma-atching ako (may asthma at allergic rhinitis kasi ako) kaya itry ko lang muna.

actually sis baka same lang ng amount yung magagamit sa pagdust sa mga areas, baka mas marami pa nga ang kailangan kesa sa body nila. Mahahatching ka talaga sis, expect mo na yun kasi kumakalat talaga sya ;D
