I baby sit and old coworkers kids. they dont have a washer or dryer and their dds car seat cover was really dirty, so i decided to wash it for them. when i took the cover(its a carry seat) roaches came crawling out. i had df take the cover and i started washing the seat with hot water right away. it was so nasty. it was infested. there was a nest in. im so grossed out right now, i need an effing shower(i used all my hot water so i have to wait)
My question is do i say something to them? i know they are clean ppl but they do live in an apartment. i know it is embarrasing to have bugs and i think they should know but i guess i dont know how to bring it up.

I'd just tell her you washed the car seat cover and a few roaches come out and you just wanted to let her know so she can call an exterminator...

Yes, let them know there must be an infestation in their apartment building. Catnip is a good baby-safe roach repellent. They may want to consider placing some in her carrier when it's not in use.

That is why I am glad the bug man comes around to the apratments where I live once a month. No bugs ever.

Oh honey - most definitely yes. With that kind of problem, though, they are probably already aware of it. Maybe offer to help...
