    How indicative of active infestation is the sweaty, musty smell? Does it linger after treatment? I washed and bagged some T-shirts which were in my infested backback, twice. I finally got over the psychological connection and wore one of them out today. As I took it out of the bag I noticed the smell. But I told myself there is no way there are any live bugs in there. 30 minutes later I notice some irritation on the inside of my wrist. Is it possible that the bugs survived 2 washes/hot drys or that the smell stays forever?
