To kill fleas, wash bed linens in a washing machine using regular laundry detergent. Dry bed linens in a clothes dryer set at the highest temperature allowed according to the bed linen care label. Rewash bed linens every three days to kill any newly hatched fleas. Do this until the flea population in the household is gone. Spray bed linens lightly with a natural pesticide to kill and repel future fleas. D-limonene and linalool are natural pesticides that are derived from citrus extracts. The organization "Beyond Pesticides" states in the "Journal of Pesticide Reform" that d-limonene and linalool are effective for controlling flea populations.
