2. Apply A Mite-Killing Solution to Car Seats, Cloth Furniture And Rugs
It is not a given that the scabies mites will spread to or survive on cloth furniture, rugs or your car seats but err on the side of safety is always the best – and cleaning your office chair is recommended, too. As a standard procedure, you should vacuum your carpets and rugs.
Use a permethrin spray intended for clothing specifically, and, if you can, spray this on the rugs and carpets and leave them to air dry. Sunlight decreases the effectiveness of the spray so if the smell irritates you, move the rugs to the garage or one isolated room if possible.
A deep vacuum or steam clean is effective in most cases though. For other cloth furniture such as your car chair, spray the surface area until it’s soggy or wet, and allow it to air dry. Cats, fish, and bees should not have contact with permethrin when it’s wet as the non-dry form is toxic to them.
