Sorry I don’t know any exterminators but this is one of many other reasons as to why I can’t never buy secondhand clothes-new or not 😞😭

If your in council housing ring ur council and they have to come out and sort it xx

Did they manage to get in your home? Or did you spot them and chuck the offending item straight back into the bag?? This is not ok. Bed bug extermination is expensive and in worst cases you may need to buy a new bed, carpets, furniture etc. It’s no joke. I think you need to speak to a solicitor about if there is any case for going after the seller for any costs. Most offer a free half hour so better to find out where you stand as it will get expensive. What a disgusting tramp sending clothing out like that! Her place must be infested if they’re in her clothes too 🤮

This is one of the reasons why I don't tend to buy things second hand😬 I'm sorry that this has happened to you. I'm sorry I don't know as I'm not from London, I hope that you get this sorted out soon.

Exactly what @Neena said. That’s absolutely vile. It’s not like we’re in the Charles Dickens era and bed bugs are the ‘norm’ anymore. Hope you get it sorted asap.

Omg this has brought a whole new fear to me !!!!!!!! I’ve recently bought some bits and now I’m like NEVER again 🥴🥴🥴🥴

@Aimee same, I’m so paranoid now

Oh geez. I never buy second hand ANYTHING, I’d rather pay full price knowing it’s not going to have anything wrong with it. I would definitely contact a solicitor / Vinted!!! Get that seller done for it. They would’ve fully known they had bed bugs. Hope it gets sorted bless you xx

My Vinted orders go straight from the packaging (only time I'll open slightly before getting home is from inpost as they regularly mix parcels) into the washing machine. I'd be horrified if I found bugs 🤮

@Carys do you wash it at 60 or 40 degrees? I hard you need to wash it at 60 degrees but worried about shrinkage

@Ana typically a 40 wash as that's the standard wash setting I stick it on.
