    Hi,

    I have a question. I recently washed my waterproof mattress protector and after the wash, i see some black spots on it. I had washed another bed sheet in white along with it but it doesnt have any spots.
    At first i was sacred it might be bed bug fecal but there are no spots on anything else, not on the bed sheets, mattress, pillows and no bite marks on me. So i am unable to explain the black spots on the protector. I washed it again but they are still there.

    Is it possible that these black spots are simply underlying threading that has been exposed?

    The first 3 pics are from different distances of the black spots and the 4th is for a size reference between a marker spot on a kitchen towel and the black spots on the protector

    Hi,

    If you look at the "blood spots on sheets primer" you can see the fine detail is not correct for these to relate to bedbugs. Its not bleeding in like liquid stain related to bedbugs would.

    Hope that helps.
