Salt is the common household item known to kill fleas. Salt when placed on surfaces where fleas possibly lie can dehydrate and kill them. Vacuuming the area afterwards is recommended in order to totally eliminate fleas.

Dish detergent as well as shampoo or borax may kill fleas. You may also buy diatomaceous earth which will dehydrate and kill the fleas.
