    My wife washed some of my shirts yesterday. Unfortunately, a mouse somehow got into the laundry. When my wife pulled my white shirts out of the dryer they were covered in mouse blood.

    My wife immediately put my shirts in the laundry sink to soak with some spot remover. She then came and told me what happened and let me know that I might have to buy some new shirts.

    However, my wife re-did the laundry today and reports that my shirts are completely clean and that you could never see the blood was there. However, I still know that they were soaked with the blood and mouse guts. I find this to be gross; I am not sure that I can allow these shirts to come into contact with my skin ever again knowing what I now know about the mouse entrails that were mixed into my shirt.

    What should I do?

    What would other members do?

    Should I just buy new shirts or suck it up and wear the shirts I have?

    No problem here. If it ever comes up, you killed the beast in mortal combat while protecting the shrieking woman you love, then she dutifully washed the blood out of your clothes while you roasted the carcass over an open fire of freshly-chopped wood, and enjoyed a mousekebab with a mug of ale that mysteriously appeared.

    Your choice for goodness sake. NO one can advise you on such a matter. Entirely personal

    Ask your wife how to be a man and deal with cooties. She clearly can.

    What do you do with your pants when you poop in them? The answer to this question will guide you on your shirt dilemma.

    I think the OP will need to hear more about your personal experiences in this respect.

    Nobody thinks a bit of shredded mouse -- or worse -- hasn't found its way into their garments during construction?

    Stop being a bitch!

    Either wear the shirts or get new ones! You actually posted this on SF for advice?

    WTF???

    If you don't like the thread, you could just click past it. No need to be rude about it!


    Plus...It's a totally reasonable question. Questions about garment care, dry cleaning, etc. often come up.

    But what about germs and vermin? What if your garment is stained with something that you just find so disgusting that you just can't imagine it ever being "clean" again no matter how much you wash it?

    We all wonder about these things. It is normal! Chill out !

    Oh, goodness, I thought you said that a mouse cursor had gotten into your laundry. This is a much better outcome and would not want to see any mouse cursors injured as a result of this incident. That would only serve to make me very very sad indeed.

    If you can't see it, there are barely any remnants there at all. Suck it up and wear the shirts.
