    Hello,

    We had clothing and "stuff" in plastic storage bins, when looking through our rooms to determine where the infestation is we found some in these bins, everything in them has been treated or tossed (appropriately)

    My question is...How do I clean the plastic storage bins so I may re-use them to store the treated clothes?

    Or is that not possible?

    Thank you!

    It seems like the main concern is whether there would be eggs inside that you don't see... Can you steam clean them?

    Visual inspection should be easy, or rinse with water heated on the stove top. Don't drive yourself crazy with the easier stuff.

    I boiled water and just poured it everywhere. Twice. Did it in the tub, no fuss or muss.

    Not a pro here. Call me Jon Snow...... for I know nothing, except what I've experienced.
