So we're moving back into our house week after next. We've been away for 4 months. Going back our home has apparently been invaded by a rat or rats. Lovely!!! I can't afford new beds and all that. I'm not worried about everything else as I know I can wash the clothes, clean everything else, etc... I'm just concerned about the mattresses. What can I use to clean/disinfect our mattresses?????

  • Get a couple cats or call an exterminator.

  • Hehe...I already put out poison before we go back and looks like they're gone...just need to do the wonderful clean up!

  • Ugh be careful using poison... If they die in your walls they *stink* -- I used to live in a house right near a HUGE open field and park... we had a rat family move in and unfortunately didn't use a trap. It was awful smelling for a while.
