Q&A Home

Rachel writes,

If I use the Packtite when I bring luggage home from trips, is it ok to Packtite dirty clothes?

Will the Packtite "bake" in the dirt and smell?


You should just wash and dry any dirty clothes in your luggage. Running clothes through a wash cycle and clothes dryer on high heat will kill all stages of bed bugs.  Baking the dirty clothes in the PackTite for a couple of hours may in fact "bake" stains and odors into the clothes.
