Hi Kid,

you can pick up FGMO aka Food Grade Mineral Oil at any pharmacy. To fog it, you just need an insect fogger you can buy at any hardware store.  Burgess Fogger or Black Flag Fogger. Maker sure you haven't used ANYTHING else in it, and make sure it doesn't look like it was bought and returned. Get a nice new box, you don't want any chance of pesticide having been used in it.

You can get detailed info here:

FGMO is useful as a preventative.  By itself, it's not effective enough to knock down an existing high population of mites quickly.  I have not tried it with thymol, but that could be a more useful method if you want to knock down a lot of mites.
