Morgellons and Laundry – Revised (Part 4)
Morgellons and Laundry. The dreaded frontier of Morgellons, one of the worst aspects of the disease, and, in my opinion, the hardest hit area of infestation.
What is Morgellons? I do not know.
Why does Morgellons seem to breed in laundry? I do not know.
How come Morgellons is so extremely hard to get out of laundry? I do not know.
What I do know is; that Morgellons is vulnerable and can easily be eradicated from laundry fairly cheaply, if done correctly.
Through the trial and errors of my previous Laundry protocols I’ve strategically honed this latest treatment for speed, cost, and repeatability.
While Morgellons and Laundry – Part 1, Part 2, and Part 3 all offer great advice and each have their benefits. The latest Morgellons and Laundry entry, this one, is the most up to date, has the highest success rate, and is the cheapest solution to purging Morgellons from the laundry.
As mentioned in other posts, it is imperative to have a Morgellons free washer and dryer. Some suggestions for keeping these machines Morgellons free are to disinfect with Xtreme Cleen, Essential Oils (peppermint, tea tree), or ultra low humidity. I, honestly, wish I knew of a better way to fully eradicate Morgellons from the washer and dry, but sadly I cannot find anything that keeps Morgellons out of the washer and dryer. This issue seems to be my biggest concern when it comes to reinfection and I can really tell a difference in the laundry when washing with a ‘dirty’ washer or dryer.
For those who do not know;
I solely attribute my infection with Morgellons to the local public laundry mat. That day I remember so vividly…my clothes felt so itchy, scratchy, crawly, and bity. Each piece I tried from that batch provided the same hellacious feelings. All clothes which were ‘cleaned’ using the public laundry mat had this eerie effect. There is not a doubt in my mind that my Morgellons came directly from a public washer and/or dryer! Now why it stayed around so long is a whole other topic. 😉
So here it is; Morgellons and Laundry – Revised (or Part 4). The fourth installment:
1). Clean, disinfect, sanitize, bomb, or do whatever else necessary to the washer and dryer in order to rid it completely of Morgellons. I suggest using a round of Xtreme Cleen, essential oils, Windex, ammonia, or Borax with nothing else to eradicate any traces of Morgellons. Using a small dehumidifier inside the machine between uses seems to help as well.
2). Take half a box of Borax, or 38 ounces, and mix/dissolve completely in a large 14 gallon storage container, like the one shown below. Make sure only to fill the bin half way as the added laundry will displace the water to a higher level.
3). Thoroughly mix laundry in dissolved Borax solution. Do not be afraid to use your hands as Borax is completely safe and non-toxic.
4). Let laundry soak for several hours.
5). Remove clothing and wring Borax/Water solution back into plastic container. This mixture can be reused several times! I get about 3-4 loads from 36 oz of Borax and 7-10 gallons of water. Make sure to keep lid on Borax/Water mixture to prevent evaporation. Mixture can store for 3-5 days.
Washing – Choose first or second method
6). First method; Take clothes, sheets, or other laundry and wash in washer machine with super hot water (upwards of 140 F, set your hot water heater higher if necessary).
6). Second method; Wash by hand several times. This prevents the reinfection from the washer machine, but requires much more work.
Personally, I use the washer machine because I can’t take all the work associated with doing laundry by hand. My washer machine, however is very close to being Morgellons free after a lot of work and disinfecting. The great part is once the machine is Morgellons free it normally stays that way!
Drying – Choose first or second method
7). First method; Air dry clothes in Sunlight to get the most amount of UV disinfecting penetration and fresh air.
7). Second method; Use laundry machine dryer on highest setting for longest possible time. While I don’t condone this, some have had success using their dryers. Make sure to disinfect before and after usage. It seems the newer dryers don’t get hot enough unless they are commercial types. There are now so many regulations on dryers and EnergyStar certifications that residential dryers really don’t do any good. Not even for scabies or dust mites. I think one of the reasons Morgellons is so disseminated is because of the newer, lower temperatures of laundry dryers.
That’s it. Your clothes should be Morgellons free. Store in an air tight container like the plastic bin above and use whenever necessary. If you find that your clothes are not Morgellons free reevaluate your process for weaknesses. I promise you places of reinfection can be found in the washer or dryer! If you want to test the theory yourself test wash, by hand, a few articles after they have been soaked in the Borax/Water mixture. Hand wash and air dry and they will most definitely be Morgellons free!
This method works. I’ve used it several hundreds of times and it leaves a lasting affect on Morgellons. Nowadays, I can get away with 5-7 days worth of using my sheets, sometimes even 2 weeks, and another 5-7 days using the same articles of clothes!
I feel as I eradicate more and more of the Morgellons pathogens the population in turn decreases causing my laundry to feel cleaner and cleaner after each treatment. I tell you, that I’ve felt noticeable, huge, differences when my laundry machine washes non-treated clothes, then I wash treated clothes. Morgellons loves moist environments and a wet washer machine is just that. Be careful!
Anyways, I’ve never had an issue with Borax bleaching any clothes or pieces of laundry. If you do just lower the amount of Borax used. Refine the solution for yourself, if necessary, but I’ve found 38 ounces of Borax in 7-10 gallons of water to be prime.
What is Borax? Wikipedia Article on Borax.
To me treating laundry like this and having success with diminishing Morgellons symptoms hints that Morgellons is some sort of bizarre parasitic infection. If I can drastically reduce the presence of Morgellons by treating my laundry harshly with various products and if left untreated the presence of Morgellons exponentially increases in my laundry than the logical assumption would be Morgellons is of something biological. A living, breathing, consuming insect, parasite, nanobug, bioengineered robot, or whatever else.
Why can’t anyone show proof of what Morgellon is? Seriously, it can’t be that hard to see under a microscope…I have about a million living and breeding samples!
For that matter, I guess I really don’t care what Morgellons is. What I do care about is how to beat it and how to beat it safely without any more toxic burdens entering my body.
Well that is all for now. So Good Luck, Stay Strong, and Stay Sane.
And remember; Morgellons is not life ending, it’s life changing!
A few extra hints…I only have 1 weeks worth of clothes, towels, sheets, or whatever else that needs periodic cleaning. This allows me to have 3 plastic bins; one for clean laundry, one for dirty laundry, and one for Borax/Water washing and soaking. This really keeps Morgellons from going on breeding binge.
