I was wondering if it was possible to hand wash fleece and if so what is the best way to do it? I don't have a washing machine at my house and so I have to go to the local laundry to wash my clothes... would it be safe to also wash the fleece with my clothes and if so are there any safe washing stuff to use?

It's not as easy to remove smells and hairs when washing by hand, but it's possible to get them 'clean enough' for the rats to reuse. I would use a gentle hand detergent but one without conditioner included. They'll need repeated rinsings to get it out again.

If you were to go to the launderette, I'd put the hammocks inside a wash bag (they are sold for horse rugs - e.g. this one) to prevent hairs getting transferred to the machine, but I would wash your clothes separately unless you want them to gather a hint of rat. :P

Yes, but again, I wouldn't use a conditioner at all.
