Messy Mouse Problem

Okay here is a cityfied question, hadn't had to ask one of these in a spell. In the kitchen there was a very bad smell, I finally narrowed it down to the bottom cupboard next to the sink. This is gross but the mice were using my shelfpaper for their deposits and I ain't talking money. I ripped everything out, I just put canned goods there. Washed down everything with bleach, than with pinesol, left it empty but that yucky, yucky, smell is still there. We realized the mice were coming in from the opening around the drain pipe in the bottom of the sink cupboard which we have filled with steel wool. Anyway is there anything I can do about that smell.

EIEIO, you may have a dead rat in there somewhere. They are good at dieing behind the stove or somewhere hard to get to.

Think about this in the morning at breakfast. My Grandmother had a toaster that wasn't working. I decided to take it apart one day. In the bottom was the mummyfied remains of a rat. I bet that made some good toast!

THANK YOU THANK YOU! Guess I get to go to my favorite shopping mall today, in fact the only shopping mall within a 100 mile radius - WALLY-WORLD and buy me some stink remover.

You are all the best!!!

Paint is good but if you don't want to go that far Wal Mart sells some stuff called Odor Out that will kill rat smell and it does'nt leave any kind of odor at all.

You just spray it in and leave it alone

Ain't that ole Burrhead smart! Just what I was going to suggest. The smell will eventually go away, but that stuff from the Wall Mart really does a good job.
