I have discovered the perfect biological weapon.
When I clean their cages, I put their bedding in a trash bag and take it upstairs to wash. Unfortunately, one bag got hidden behind some thing, and when I found it weeks later, I didn't think twice about what I was doing as I opened it and tossed it into the wash.
Science is educational. Rat bedding that has been sealed off for no telling how long in a plastic bag doesn't breathe as the ammonia breaks down. I now know what the animal hoarder houses contend with.
I got a face, nose, and lung full of rat ammonia. I thought someone was trying to burn my face off. Whoof. I won't say how many washes that load went through before I was satisfied it was reusable, but it made a noticeable dent in my water and power bill next round.
Now you know, and knowing is half the battle. LOL
