Pre-sort your clothes as you normally would before washing a load of laundry, such as into lights, darks, delicates, etc. Sort them in the infested area, to prevent spreading the bedbugs into another area of your home. Place each pile of clothing into a large trash bag and seal it.
Then do follow these laundry tips to help you get rid of bed bugs in clothes: Spray your clothing with rubbing alcohol until you can get them to a laundry unit. Rubbing alcohol helps eliminate bed bugs on contact. Next, you must bag and clean items which cannot be laundered, such as shoes, books, electronic goods, jewelry etc.
Use hot water to wash all clothes, linens and anything fabric that may have contacted the bugs. Heat will kill anything hiding in your linens. Use a dryer to dry everything as well, because a dryer will hit the bugs with a double dose of heat. Just make sure you pay attention to the tags on the fabric, as your linens may be dry clean only.
Bed bugs don't like being jostled, so they avoid hanging out in your hair or clothes, but they do like to stay close to their food source, namely you. The mattress is the first place you should inspect if you're trying to figure out how to get rid of bed bugs fast.
Your clothes will need to be washed at a high temperature — at least 120 degrees — to ensure that the bed bugs die. Step 2: Take your luggage outside and thoroughly vacuum it. With a stiff brush, you're going to want to give your suitcase a good scrub to loosen up any dead bed bugs or bed bug eggs that may be clinging to the lining.
If you do find bugs crawling on your body or in your hair, then you probably have something else, like ticks, lice, or fleas. Any of these can also be found on clothing you are wearing. Bed bugs found in clothes that you are wearing were likely trying to hitch a ride until they could find a place to get off and make a hiding spot.
