Figuring out how to get head lice out of hair is hard enough. Then comes the challenge of making sure bedding and stuffed animals are bug free. On my Readers Respond page for head-lice ideas, reader Trishh had a suggestion for infested items, as well as praise for an oft-mentioned hair remedy: "Instead of having to throw out stuffed animals or do tons of laundry, bag it and freeze it for 48 hrs. Then run what you can through the dryer. Tea tree oil smothering for hair was a lifesaver. We were all at our wits end. Never a problem since!" Do you have a head-lice tip? Pass it on.
