    Anyone notice this item in Now Mag this week. It says "if you're rigorous with your spraying," maybe Kleen Green is the solution??

    SO, does anyone know exactly how to use Kleen Green correctly? What is it, where to spray, how often, does it actually work to kill them etc?

    Thanks. (Yes I know about the FAQs and tags, it's just cumbersome when you want a quick answer.)

    "P.S. you’ll want to carefully inspect curb finds and antiques before taking them home from now on."

    NO! You want to NOT pick anything up!

    Bad advice.

    I went and looked at the Kleen Green web site (http://www.naturalginesis.com/products_kleengreen.html) and boy, it sounds like the Holy Grail of bedbug killing. That makes me suspicious, but I am a cynic by nature. I'd like to know if anyone has tried this, too.

    Lots of bad advice in the article. Steaming your mattress and then putting it in a "barrier sheet"? Rubbish.

    Kleen Green is a contact kill. If you have bed bugs, most will likely be hiding where you can't see or spray them.

    (Yes I know about the FAQs and tags, it's just cumbersome when you want a quick answer.)

    I get that, but -- don't take this the wrong way-- it's also cumbersome for people to type out the same thing repeatedly every time someone has the same question. If you click the tag at top right, there are several discussions about it already.

    I'm glad you posted the article though. People need to be careful where they get advice.

    I started and run the site but am "not an expert."
