Cedar Bug-Free Laundry Additive is designed to kill bed bugs in your bed sheets, clothing, etc. Eliminating bed bugs from your bedding and clothing is a critical step in ending their infestation. Bed bugs infest your bedding and clothing and continue biting while you are asleep or awake, even away from your home. They are commonly carried on clothing from place to place thus spreading their infestations to other rooms, furniture, cars, houses, even to your workplace. There is a lot of controversy surrounding the hot water/clothes dryer temperature which will kill bed bugs, but it is a fact that bed bugs attach themselves to bed sheets, pillow cases, blankets, clothing and any other fabric material. The professionals that specialize in laundering clothing that has been exposed to bed bugs tell us that bed bugs can be killed by exposure to heat, but they must be exposed to a temperature of at least 130° F for a minimum of 35 minutes. This means that the water in the washing machine must be well above 130° F because the water cools down immediately as it hits the clothes and the tub inside the washer. The same concept applies to the dryer; the wet clothes take a very long time to heat up. The problem is compounded by the fact that residential hot water rarely exceeds 130° F, and then you have all those delicate items that must be washed in cold or warm water. To this end, you need to wash ALL your bedding and clothing often using Cedar Bug-Free Laundry Additive, which will kill the bed bugs in cold or hot water but not harm or stink-up your clothes.
