Wash all bedding using hot water and 20 Mule Team Borax. While it's washing, sprinkle 20 Mule Team Borax on the mattress. Place a plastic zippered mattress cover on the mattress. The next time you change sheets, you can take the cover off and vacuum the mattress. Borax kills fleas and eggs.

How do I launder bedding to get rid of fleas? I've tried Borax with my regular detergent, spraying mattress?

Are sure sure they are fleas? Your description of the little critters in the bedding makes me think you may have bed bugs in the bedding.


Have you actually seen them? You can find out more about bed bugs by going to and typing in bed bugs.

If they are indeed actually fleas, and not bed bugs, then they are in your home, and they will continue to get in your bedding, until they are eliminated from your home. Getting rid of them depends on if you want to try all natural, home made type remedies, or if you want to use over the counter treatments, or try the professional route by hiring an exterminator. Best of luck to you in this, I hope you find something that works well.

I agree with fatboyslimsmom. If they are fleas you can just fumigate.


That should take care of fleas. If the are indeed bed bugs good luck to you.
