    So, India...
    The last 10days we have been staying in one guesthouse, yesterday night I saw a creature spankulating on the sheets.

    Hmm, it's a bedbug... A bedbug?? A BEDbug??!
    A BEDBUG!!!

    So, since then we have been boiling water with a big immersion heater (or "dipper heater").
    Getting 5litres of boiling water witch we then poured on top of a few items of clothing leaving to soak for 30-45minuted under cover and then refilling with boiling water leaving for another 30 minutes...

    What do you think about this? The clothes have not been properly boiled but soaked in water with a starting temperature near to boiling temperature, twice.
    Will this get to any possible eggs?

    Flying back home tomorrow to work on a ship, sure as he'll don't want to bring these bastard with me!!

    Any ideas will be received with gratitude

    As long as the water was able to penetrate the material, not bundled up with the inner core protected, than you should be bed bug free on those items. 120F is lethal for all life stages.
