Are cloths from the dollar store suitable as bedding? What are the pros and cons of this? How do you go about washing them safely?

i dont see why they wouldnt be alright. wash them before you give them to your ratties though.

pros? cheap and easy. cons? never know what they're made of, or if they have allergens in them.

I have too many clothes, so my rat is starting to get what I don't wear anymore. :X
Hand-me-downs of a different kind! She really enjoys eating blue-jeans...

just keep your eyes open for loose threads and cut them off. rats can get their little feet caught in them and have circulation cut off and potentially lose a foot/leg.

i just throw my rats bedding in the washing machine with whatever needs to be washed at the time... usually my clothes... my ratties dont mind me doing their laundry this way...
