Put them in the freezer for 24 hours. I saw this on a cleaning show on TV.

If you can fit the pillow in the micro wave and it doesn't have any metal zippers on it, putting it on high for 1 minutes should kill all them little buggers. http://www.mysafetygates.com

Ditto what curlynleigh said about putting in the freezer.

Putting porous items (like blankets, sheets, pillows, stuffed animals, etc) in plastic bags and putting them in the freezer for 48 hours will kill dust mites. After you remove your bedding from the freezer, make sure that you wash each article. The freezer may kill dust mites, but without rinsing away the dead mites and their fecal matter, you will still be exposed to their allergen.
