    Hi everyone!

    Our Airbnb had bed bugs. Do you think I should take our clothes to a laundromat or just wash and dry all clothes at home?

    A bit of background, we used the Airbnb dryer located downstairs, away from the bedroom that was upstairs. We dried all of our clothes for 30 minutes on high heat. After drying, we placed the clothes into lawn and leaf bags, knotted them, and then placed the bags into our car. The only things at risk of bed bug transmission are our clothes that we wore to bed the night before we left, which we placed into its own bag.

    The clothes are currently still in the car, inside the bags.

    Should I launder at home or should I go to he laundromat with the clothes?

    If you feel it's sufficiently isolated and contained then it's safe to wait till you get home.

    I would also advise you watch the video on home to inspect rooms before you sleep and to monitor your home as best practice.

    Hope that helps.
