  2. Remove all clothing from dressers and closets. All washable items can be placed in dryer for 45 minutes, folded and placed in new 3ml plastic bags and knotted. Discard all old, contaminated bags  in a new bag, sealed and put out to trash.
  3. All non-washable items (dry cleaning, shoes, books, knick knacks, pocketbooks, etc.) must be placed either in open plastic bags or a closet. These items will be quarantined by TEAM for 10 days with insect strips and sealed by TEAM. TEAM will open and remove insect strips in 10 days.
