So the little one came home with lice ... been doing the treatments and washing everything in sight.
Wrapped up the pillows in plastic bags ... supposed to keep them there for 2 weeks or so. Then what? Open up the bags, shake them out and continue to use them? Or is it a safer bet to just buy new ones?
Also, do those bedding sprays work? I've already washed all the bedding but am leary of those products for fear that they are too toxic (DD is extremely sensitive).

Lice is a pure nightmare! When my daughter was in the second grade she came home lice. I treated my whole family with Rid lice hair shampoo even if my daughter was the only one with the lice. You have to make sure you use a fine tooth comb and hand pick the eggs out or the lice will keep coming back. Stuffed animals, pillows all have to be put in plastic bags for two weeks, wash all linens in hot water. Buy the lice spray and spray on bedding, sofas, car. Vacuum daily. Remind your child not to share combs, brushes or hats with friends. I had a difficult time getting rid of the lice my daughters pediatrician prescribed me a shampoo called quail which killed the lice for good.
