    I saw your post the other day Happyma but didn't know how to respond.... you can't feel dustmites; they are microscopic. You can't catch them from a bag of clothes, they are in your home all the time.
    I'm not sure about bub bombs; I know you can get dustmite specific ones but I really think they'd only be useful if you had carpet- it's just not going to get into the little corners and dark places of beds etc which is where they love to hide.
    The best thing is to do what you're doing- vacuuming (the HEPA filter is great), wash bedding, wipe down corners of beds in around the bed posts etc, vacuum under the beds, freeze pillows, cushions & soft toys, buy enveloped dustmite protectors for your beds.
    You can't get rid of them but you can try and control them.
