to all whos plan on getting a new bed,mattress,blankets,sheets..etc or first time getting one..etc,listen up (very important)
never ever buy a used one at the thrift store,goodwill..etc because my neighbor bought a used mattress at the goodwill and it has bedbugs on it and got bad enough that went though his walls..etc and got into my apartment,oh man i never been though this stress when i came home after the pest control sprayed..
i have to:
throw away my pillows(one was bought like a month ago)
some of my stuff got thrown away
i got at least 3 bags of clothes to wash
i had to leave out of my comfort zone(my own home) by stay at mom and dad's house
i came home with huge mess
i had to buy new pillows,sheets..etc(means i had to spend $$$ all because my old ones got ruined
i got bitten on my arms,legs..etc
best part is least my neighbor pay the pest control as part of his punishment for cause all this mess to me and 2 other neighbors so my neighbor paid the pest control $3000.00 so thus he got what he desrve is by losing $3000.00 out of his pocket,hope he learn his lession and like to see him move so this won't happen again(least in/near my home/building)
I tried to donate a mattress once years ago and they wouldn't take it for that exact reason. I guess these organizations are so strapped for cash now that they will. Somehow I got the impression it was a Texas statute rather than a local ordinance.

I slept on an air mattress from Walmart for 2 years until I could get a real bed. Just the thought of sleeping in unknown nastiness from an unknown person (who may have wet the bed, slept around, etc.,) kept me from ever getting a used bed...
