bed bugs

Asked September 5, 2014, 2:56 PM EDT

I keep reading that I have to put stuff in dryer, run on HOT, to kill bed bugs. I only have clothes line in yard. Will washing in hot water do it? Water heater is up all the way, meat thermometer says it's about 144 F.

Washing in hot water is necessary but so it using a dryer to help in eliminating these pesky bugs. I suggest that you go to a Laundromat to use the dryers.
