How do you clean bed bugs from your car?

What's the best way to get bed bugs out of your car? After giving one of my kid's friends a ride, I noticed bed bugs in it. Help!

Answer
“Yikes! So glad you noticed right away. The first thing you should do to get rid of bed bugs in your car is to park it in the sun.
Bed bugs die at temperatures above 113 degrees. Although you won’t want to scorch the interior of your car, one day in the summer sun won’t hurt and should get rid of the problem.
If it’s winter, you have other options. Steam clean your car, or spread eco-friendly diatomaceous earth throughout it. Either should fix the issue.
Not to be a pest—we know you’ve had your fill—but while you’re at it, you should also consider packing a winter emergency kit in your vehicle to keep you and your family safe, even if you have roadside assistance.
And if you don’t, the Jerry app offers roadside assistance memberships through Urgently for only $50 a year.”
