Cleaning Options?(2 posts)
I do not as of yet have an infestation in my home. But when I came home this weekend after exposure at a hotel, I brought my stuff inside the front door. I know, bad idea, but I don't have a yard, garage or other temporary storage area. I put everything in plastic bags right away based on advice from a fellow poster. I laundered my clothing at the laundromat. That was yesterday. Today I decided it just wasn't worth it and pitched everything that may have been exposed except my laptop, passport, medications and a few important papers. These are still in plastic bags.
I now want to clean. Floors are tile in the entranceway where the goods were. Then a few steps up and wood in the main living area. Will bleach kill bb's? I've read about Murphy's Oil Soap. Does anyone know of a subsitute? I'm currently living in Europe and can't find this on the shelves. I only seem to be able to find 70% rubbing alcohol in the stores here ... will that do any good or am I wasting my time?
Any advice on cleaning from a European perspective appreciated. It's alway so much easier when stuff like this happens back home. On the other hand, I'm glad it didn't happen in my "real" apartment!
i'm sorry i'm not sure what is available in europe. i was told by my pco that murphy's oil soap works because it is an oily cleaning product, and the oil coats the shell of the bug (through which they get their oxygen) suffocating them. if there is another product that you could substitute with similar ingredients, perhaps that could work?
