Does anyone know how to get mouse/rat urine stains from clothing? I had my off-season clothing hung in my spare bedroom closet but found evidence of droppings and yellow urine stains on the shoulders of the hanging items. I tried regular laundering but the urine stains remained. Didn't want to try anything else until I consulted my friends. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
You might try Cascade Powder dissolved in water. Soak as long as needed. I just put an amount in according to stain. Be sure to dissolve. Have used on whited and colors.
I have had great results with peroxide to remove blood on a handkerchiefs, on tough stains, I'll put them (white) in a cool whip bowl with water, bleach and peroxide and let it soak all day... but I can't get good results for mouse urine on colored clothes since I can't use bleach. Maybe I'll try it with color safe bleach!
Use persil proclean laundry detergent. Saturate soiled area, gently rub, let washer run a couple of min, soak for an hour, then let the washer run it's cycle. Hang to dry, inspect stain, repeat if necessary.

I just got my summer clothes out and my favorite white shorts have a big yellow stain on the pocket. Well, I'm most certain it is (mouse urine), I've washed them in Clorox, sprayed them with Resolve, and let them sit. This I have done more than once. The stain is still there. Should I give up? Or is there something else I can try?
Have you tried the same method of spray spot remover and then hot water with fabric detergent and bleach and allow the garment to soak in the washer for several hours even over night. You may need to wash the garment another time to remove the bleach smell.
Well, unless this is a very sentimental or very expensive piece of clothing, I would just pitch it. If you can't get the stain completely out, do you want to wear something that has mouse urine on it (even if it is not so noticeable)?
I would put them in a bucket or basin with hot water and a cup of Oxy Clean and leave it for a week or more. This saved a bedspread of mine with similar stains that wouldn't come out.
Will it work on nylon.? I got a white shirt last summer and wore one time. The urine stain is the size oh a half dollar. I have used vinegar and baking soda.
First of all, glad I am not the only person that has this problem. I was freaked out. I just found the same problem with a pair of white slacks that said not to use chlorine bleach. I soaked spot with peroxide and rubbed away some with fingernail, added more peroxide then sprinkled baking soda on top to make a paste to rub in. 30 minutes later the stain was gone. I laundered as usual. The stains are gone. luckily this garment could be laundered, I have others that are dry clean only. I don't know if a dry cleaner can get the stain out.
