I wasn't sure if this thread goes under simple and green living, because I am not opposed to using harsh chemicals!
N just "won" a side table for her dorm at her place of employment, a nursing home. She was told confidentially awhile ago that the place had bed bugs in the basement. I'm not sure if that has been rectified or not. N works in the dining services--not in the rooms.
Anyway, is there a chance that an end table can bring in bed bugs? Is there a way we should disinfect it before she brings it in the house? I think for now I'll keep it in the garage until she moves into the dorm.
