How do I keep cockroaches from coming home in my overnight bag?

My SO has a small cockroach problem (like just about everyone who lives in that part of London) that has recently become a big cockroach problem, and is now my problem. The last 2 times I stayed over, I realized 1-4 came home with me. After the first time I had assumed simply keeping my bag high off the floor while there would solve the problem but it did not. At least one came back with me this afternoon.
Throwing my bag and everything in it into the washing machine is less-than-ideal (for example, times when I return too late to run it w/o disturbing neighbors).
What are my options here? Is there anything I can put in my bag to keep them out? Is there a product in the UK to fog-out my bag in between houses that ideally won't damage things like my phone charger & toiletries or stink up my house with regular use? Should I even worry about 1-4 cockroaches coming back at a time?
