Rats in garage... help

(3 Posts)

I am so upset as i have found rat droppings in our garage, and a mouse nest.. i wouldn't say we have rat infestation, but definately a rat or two sniffing around.

We are/were storing our pram, car seat and cot/travel cot out there. My husband and i are trying for a second baby... but now i am thinking we will have to re-buy all of the baby gear that may have come in contact with rats!!!! Would u put your new born in a car seat that may have had a rat poo on it?

My husband has spent ages today cleaning everything, washed fabric in the washing machine and dettol wiped any hard stuff lke the cot.

Would you still re-use all of this stuff... probably 1000 pounds worth!?

Thanks ladies

If it's been cleaned thoroughly and there's no damage it will be fine

Absolutely fine. If a shop selling new items had rats in their storage container you wouldn't know it. As long as the items are clean go ahead.
