Lice? Ew! 6 Steps to Get Rid of Lice in Your Home & Out of Your Life!

No one likes lice. To rid your house of lice:

  • Make sure you wash all linens and towels on a hot setting of the washing machine. 
  • Dry everything on a hot setting for at least 45 minutes. 
  • All mattresses, carpets and upholstery should be vacuumed.
  • The vacuum cleaner bag should be taken to an outside garbage can. 
  • Anything you can’t wash, place in a large trash bag then seal it tightly and let it sit for 72 hours. 
  • Don’t forget car seats, booster seats, back packs, hats and jackets. 

If you have one family member with lice, you are better off washing and bagging everyone’s items.
