People, even firewood sitting in a garage can contaminate furniture with microscopic mites - I believe they're everywhere in the outdoors. I got a loveseat from my sister and slept on it, the next morning woke up and had been slimed, covered heat to toe with - nothing I could see, but boy could I feel them.
I ran to the shower, Dawn kills mites a veterinarian told me; use hot water like a quart, add Dawn and some hydrogen peroxide - and spray like crazy. Hair spray sounds like a good way too, like I read on here. They don't like cedar oil, tea tree, lpeppermint, make a bottle with hot water and add a little carrier oil and then drops of whatever kind of oil you want to try.
My apartment is infested with tiny red mites that get all over everything - most of the time they're so tiny they can't be seen. Keep your place clean and dusted, I have to dust my computer area every day, and if they get in your hair, alcohol will stop them, or hydrogen peroxide sprayed onto your head in the area will help. Even if you can't see them, they are microscopic and will get into everything. Keep after them and don't give up!
