Travelers Beware!

Bed bugs are crafty little things. Not only will they make even a nice hotel room their home, but they’ll cling to your clothes and climb in your bag to go home with you. These tips can help you avoid such unwanted guests.

This video from the Consumer Reports YouTube channel shares some great advice on checking your hotel room for the nasty little critters. Below are some additional tips you may or may not know about:

  1. Pack large trash bags in your luggage and keep your stuff in them during your stay.

  2. Toss your clothes in the dryer for 30 minutes when you get home. The heat will help kill any clingy stragglers.

  3. Store your empty luggage in the garage, basement, or a warm attic after your trip. That keeps any bugs from easily making their way to your bedding, furniture, and clothes.

If you take the time to do a proper check and follow this advice, you should be able to travel bed bug-free.
