And NEW bedding? I could see checking used, but new stuff? I'm going to wash it to get the sizing out anyway, but not because I am worried that it would come from the factory infested.
We'll likely never stay in a motel again now, so I'm just not going to worry about it.
China doesn't have any environmental regulations so there is no telling what is in their factories. I have also stopped buying any human food or pet food items from China. 83% of the seafood consumed in the U.S. is from China. The shrimp that comes from China is fed human waste. I don't eat seafood but there are other food items such as canned mushrooms that only come from there.

THIS is one of the reasons that it is important to ensure that we continue to produce food in the US. But you don't want to get me started...

LW1: I was at the Goodwill in Monterey, CA about 3-4 weeks ago shopping for a Halloween costume and I noticed that they were selling reconditioned matresses there. I can see helping your kid out so that he doesn't have to sleep on the floor, but I'd stop short of charging my card up at Ethan Allen.

You got that right and don't get me started either.
