    Would anyone recommend one product over the other for mopping the floors? (It's safe to mop at this point in my treatment.) I've been using Murphy's orange spray for cleaning wood items, but I'm getting ready to mop, and the store was out of Murphy's but had original Pine-Sol, which is 8.7% pine oil.

    People have tested Murphy's Oil Soap as a contact killer for bed bugs.

    That means it kills bed bugs if you hit them with it directly, at that moment.

    (As far as I know, no one has tested Pine Sol for this purpose.)

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

    Thanks. I'll go to a different store and get the Murphy's tomorrow.
