You have to kill the eggs which are embedded in the fabric.
Seal the item in a plastic bag and freeze it.
In the freezer overnight.
This kills the eggs.
This is not correct, freezing only will not kill eggs

You put the cloth item in the freezer for 24 hours, allowing ice crystals to form around the insect eggs.

Place item in direct sunlight for 3-4 hours, this will heat up the water around the eggs and hatch the insects

Place item back in the freezer for 24 hours to kill the hatched insects
