Does anyone know by chance how to get a pink dye stain out of white t-shirts? I was playing with my rat and he had some pink dye on his paws from his wooden cupcake and it got on my shirt. I don't have a stain stick and it's a shirt I got for Christmas! HELP!?

Just googled this:
Saturate set-in stains with vinegar. Then, rub the spot with a paste made from equal parts vinegar and baking soda. You can add a couple tablespoons each of vinegar and laundry detergent to a bucket of water and soak the garment overnight ​if the stain persists. Then, rinse and wash.

Make sure it's WHITE vinegar not cider or anything with a color.

You're welcome.  And since vinegar isn't toxic, just has a scent, it's not harmful to your rats if you touch them after handling it.

Oh thank god...
I love my little boys with all my heart, so I didn't get upset when Garrett stained my shirt.
I just panicked because I just got that shirt for Christmas, but he's the type of rat that will not sleep without one of the cupcakes next to him, so he tends to turn pink from the non toxic dye.
I just didn't think it was still wet when I handled him last night. ;;

I'm not sure but maybe rats paws can sweat or he licked his paws trying to clean it before you handled them.

ooo I never thought about that, but he was grooming himself before I picked him up so maybe that's what happened o.o
