While travelling in the US, I had contact with bed bugs. I don't know if I got any blind passengers (I was using my sleeping bag the night I slept at the infested home), but I don't want to take any chances. I have been washing my clothes and everything that can be washed at 60°C, but I don't know if my hammocks will take this kind of heat. I also need to do something with the tarps (everything was stored in the same bag). Anybody know if I will damage the nylon at these temperatures? Especially the silnylon? I was thinking of simply submerging the silnylon tarps in hot water - not washing them with soap.
Unfortunately I don't have a big freezer to freeze everything for a couple of weeks. Which would be the alternative.
