:i tried washing the rat, then putting some mouse dirt on it and letting a few mouse walk over it. she was interested but didn't eat.

If she was interested then she may go for it if you scent it more. With some of mine I scent them and if they seem interested but still not quite enough I scent more....My dwarf hamsters think I am nuts but I mostly use them to rub dead mice or rats on them. Go figure. But I take the animal to be scented and really rub it all over the belly and backside of the scent animal. It seems to work that way. I would say scent more. And eventually you will be able to go without scenting. I just scent less and less and it has worked for me.
