Parenthood is already a handful, the last thing we need is pesky bed bugs!! But fear not, we’re here to share some tips on how to get rid of them.
- Don’t Panic:
First things first, take a deep breath. Dealing with bed bugs can be stressful, but you’ve got this.
- Detecting the Intruders:
Bed bugs are stealthy little critters. Start by inspecting your bedding, mattress seams, and any cracks or crevices near your bed. Finding them is half the battle.
- Launder and Vacuum:
Throw your bedding, curtains, and any infested clothes into the washing machine. Use the hottest water your fabrics can handle. Meanwhile, vacuum your mattress and the surrounding areas.
- Pillow and Stuffed Animal Care:
Bed bugs can hide in pillows and stuffed animals. To tackle this, pop them in the dryer on high heat for 30 minutes.
- Declutter and Seal the Cracks:
Bed bugs love hiding in clutter. This means that it is time to declutter your bedroom! Seal any cracks or crevices with caulk, making it hard for them to sneak back in.
