Threadworms experts, need advice

Off to get meds for the whole fan as found worms in dd1 and 2. Am going to booleash bedding. Have scrubbed bathrooms too. Can the eggs be cleaned/killed by antibacterial household products? Also, my kids chuck their knickers on floor, will hoovering suffice or should I steam clean.

Should I also clean the linen insert in the Washbin and should I put all pending washing in a black sack? Do I need to boil wash or will 40 drugs suffice?

Do they need to stay of school tomorrow and should I tell the teachers/friends/office?

I gutted and also embarrassed. I know thus is a common childhood thing but I still think its yuck. Thx.

Boilwash bedding not booleash!

40 degrees not 40 drugs, dear lord!
