Does the Dryer Kill Lice?
A simple answer to your question is: Yes.
The next question should be: What should be the temperature?
Before I answer this question, I must say that after you kill head lice, you should thoroughly wash your towel, pillow covers, bed sheet, recently worn clothing and anything else that you can think of.
Once you wash everything, you need to put them in a dryer. Drying in a 140 degree F dryer will be enough to kill both lice and nits.
It’s important to wash and dry your clothing because re-infestation might occur again. Lice might move to your scalp again through your towel, pillow cover, etc. However, for nits to hatch, they have to remain close to your scalp.
So, dry your clothing in a 140 degree F dryer and you will be all set.
