Even if your clothes are brand new from the store, make sure to wash and dry them on high heat as soon as possible. This can help kill the bed bugs hiding in your clothes. Try to make sure to do this regularly with all of your clothes.
8. Sprinkle some silica gel.
Do you know those little packets of silica gel that come with new shoes, clothes, and even some food items? Save them and you can use them as a bed bug desiccant. According to research, the gel can help to absorb lipids from the bed bug’s cuticle, which causes them to dehydrate and dry out.
