Sadly, once something is infested with collembola, it is not saveable. The longer you keep something that is infested, the longer your problem as a whole will continue. For the time being, you must adopt the attitude that everything is disposable. It’s hard to do, but the only way my family and I found relief was to get rid of everything. We buy most of our clothes and things from Goodwill now to save money. I have no regrets throwing away an itchy spingtail infested pair of pants because keeping them is not worth the $2 I paid for them.
