Do you have a mouse problem in your house? Not only are they disgusting, but they leave a terrible smell that is hard to get rid of. You may be tempted to just call an exterminator and hope for the best, but there are other options. In this article, I’ll discuss three ways you can get rid of that unpleasant mouse pee smell without resorting to poison!
Bleach is a very effective way to get rid of the smell of mouse pee from the wood in your home. To do this, mix a solution of one cup of water and ¼ cup of bleach in your kitchen sink. Then, using either paper towels or an old rag, you should scrub the area with the mixture until all the residue is gone.
You can also use white vinegar to get rid of the smell of mouse pee from wood products around your home. Fill a spray bottle with ½ cup of vinegar and fill up the rest with water. Spray it on surfaces that have been contaminated by mouse urine, wait a few minutes for the smell to disappear, and then wipe away the remaining odor with paper towels or an old rag.
Steam cleaning is highly recommended for carpeting that mice have urinated on. Simply take the item outside, place it on a covered patio or porch, and steam clean the underside of the carpet by holding your cleaning wand 12-16 inches from the surface while in motion.
Finally, you can use lavender oil as another way to get rid of the smell of mouse droppings in your home. Put a few drops of the oil on a cotton ball and then place it where the smell is strongest. This should help remove the odor.
