    I just found out I have bedbugs and an exterminator is coming this week to spray. He told me to kill bed bugs in laundry I have to wash with hot water and dry on the hottest setting. I imagine this will shrink my clothes, so what's the point, shouldn't I trash them? Does it shrink them a lot or a little. Also, is there anything I should add like vinegar or color safe bleach? Any tips would be greatly appreciated!

    Just run them through the dryer without washing if you're concerned about shrinkage. The laundering isn't the important part, the heat kills the bed bugs.
