    ... I don't have a Packtite and won't be able to get one, but my Timbuk2 was on the floor right where I later found some bugs. Also my (not real) gigantic crocodile bag that I use for my laptop, notebooks, books, school-junk, etc., each day, was right near there too. (I live in a 400 sq foot studio.. pretty much everything was/is 5 feet from my bed.)

    Recommendations: how do I clean my Timbuk2 and croc bag? I need both for work/grad school.. right now I am taking my stuff to work in a Trader Joe's tote bag because that can be put in dryer. Apparently if you put a Timbuk2 in the dryer then the waxed coating will melt and adhere to your dryer.

    Should I just spray the hell out of both with 91% isopropyl alcohol?
    The PCO company (I couldn't pick them--landlord gets to decide) said: just put them in a bag for four weeks, and they will suffocate ... um, nowhere online does it say that. It says it takes 18 months.
    HELP, thanks.

    I am not an expert but Nuvsn strips n a sealed container for the specified times. The strips come in different strengths. Yo MUST follow the instructions carefully.
    Would think the alcohol would wreck your bag

    I asked about those strips (because I was told only PCO has them), and that's when he said they don't go into purses, that I didn't need Nuvan strips or to worry about purses...
