I would EVERYTHING down with lysol or even hand sanitizer... Wash all of your linens with the hottest water tolerated and bleach! If you can't use regular bleach, use the bleach for colors.. I just had to disinfect due to the fact that my puppy had Parvo... Lysol id safe to use on furniture and stuff so...

Wow, I feel sorry for you that really has to suck!!  I don't have much advice for you but you could try using a steamer on the carpet and bed and stuff.  Put everything in the washer that you can.

Put what you can in the washer. Wipe down everything else with a cloth dampened in lysol solution or other disinfectant. Soak what toys you can in a bleach solution.

I am thinking that probably your little one got the worms from the outside, so she'll still be exposed to them. Try to keep her from putting her hands in her mouth, or at least to wash them before she does.

We steamed the carpets and walls as well as our beds, sofas and the crib mattress. I wiped down everything with a bleach solution (1/4 cup bleach to 1 gallon water). All of his toys got soaked in bleach water, or washed in the washer as well as all of the clothing.

We didn't have any illness, I was just in a spring cleaning mood. It's a good idea to clean your house like this anyways a few times a year.

I would take everything to the laundry mat. Get everything washed and dried at once. maybe steam clean the carpets and even the car. Wipe everything down with bleach or lysol. good luck. My son got scabies when he was in daycare a few years ago and the was a pain! Even the stuffed animals had to be washed.
