Pamela from Chicago, Il writes,

Can you wear clothing (items that cannot be washed or dryed) after they have been treated with Nuvan ProStrips...

I want to put the Nuvan ProStrips in my closets where my clothing is but most of the items cannot be washed or dryed in a clothes dryer. Can you wear the clothing after it has been treated without dry cleaning them since they cannot be washed. Is it safe to wear the clothes without washing, drying or dry cleaning them first?


You do not have to wash clothing or other items that have been in a bag or bin with Nuvan strips. You should air the clothing out a for a few days prior to wearing it. You should also note that most dry cleaners agree that even though dry clean only clothing cannot be washed it can go through the dryer (do not wet clothing first) on med high heat to kill the bedbugs and bedbug eggs without harming the clothing.
