Hey all!

I am facing a clothes moth infestation in my room right now. I am living in this room for one more month until I go back to my original home.
I really don't want to take them back with me in my suitcase to infest my new home.

How do I completely be sure that when I am packing my clothes for travel, I am cleaning them and not taking any clothes moths, eggs or larvae with me?

Please help!

Do you have access through friends or otherwise to some large deep freeze units, either chest freezers or walk-in freezers?  You could place your luggage/clothing in there for 1-2 days and I think most things would be dead from that.

I don't have such a place, but I will wash my clothes in hot water wash to remove the larvae/eggs. What I am actually worried about is the electronic items like my CPU and also my shoes which have fabric. Do you think it will have these worms/eggs? What should I do about these?
