A few guys I know that have stored cars swear by Irish Spring soap (original scent); couple bars inside, one in the trunk, one on the air cleaner... supposedly there's something specific to that brand that mice/rats can't stand [xx(]

I hate the smell of mothballs so much that I've always taken my chances- and paid with seat filling and headliner material :([V] The soap smells much better, plus the smell fades quickly when the car is opened and used in the Spring!

Some say scented dryer sheets work also; so I have both in my stored cars- soap bars on paper on the floor, dryer sheets under the seats... hope this works like they say!! [^] Wanted to pass this along...

What (if anything) do you use?

Had just found the makings of a nest under my Hawk Supercharger last year. Threw sheets of Bounce all over the engine comp, inside, glove box & trunk..After winter thaw found they moved into a desk drawer where I hadn't any Bounce around. Did my ritual a month ago, including around the desk & so far, no mice

As I was told, the soap is brand-specific, but the dryer sheets aren't; any brand will do. I bought generic brand.

I seem to remember that certain, er, herb fanciers favored chunks of apple to keep their stash from becoming too dry.[8D]

Gord,

I have heard that folks also did the same thing with tobacco. Sounds like they just transferred their knowledge to another product (looking for the up in smoke smiley).

I've tried mothballs and dryersheets. In most cases they work, there's always exceptions. In my '52 Commander there's one little devil who loves to collect mothballs. I've thrown out two nests that were filled with them. Dryer sheets don't seem to bother it. I continue to struggle with him/her and the fight goes on... I'll try the soap.

I once had an old t-bird that had been infested w/mice. After stripping the whole interior out and scrubbing it all down-I re-installed the interior,and spread a couple sliced up apples around inside. I picked up my son from school[about 10 years old at time]asked him if the car smelled any better-he said yeah,it smells like poop and apples...

I just went with the mothballs this year. When the snow gets low enough to get in the buildings, we'll see how my cars fared.

Hopefully they escaped unscathed; it's bad enough they'll smell like my Grandma's basement:([xx(]

Another old trick for mice is to soak a dried natural sponge in bacon fat. After consuming it the critters then become thirsty and the sponge expands when they drink water. Problem solved.

Bacon fat(ever tried getting a grease stain out of upholstery?), soap, mothballs...give me a Rat Snake over any of 'em!

Seriously, I thought this was gonna be about riding dogs around in your Stude! Someone at some point in the past life of my '61 Cruiser had done that, and one of the things I had to take care of was having the arm rests recovered, since the back ones had been used as a chew toy for someone's small dog. You could see the outline of its entire upper jaw on one armrest, every tooth having made its mark.

Bacon fat(ever tried getting a grease stain out of upholstery?), soap, mothballs...give me a Rat Snake over any of 'em!

Seriously, I thought this was gonna be about riding dogs around in your Stude! Someone at some point in the past life of my '61 Cruiser had done that, and one of the things I had to take care of was having the arm rests recovered, since the back ones had been used as a chew toy for someone's small dog.

Just picked up my 62 Avanti from Bob Palmas stoage facility, in Beautiful Downtown Brownsburg. It was there for almost 2 1/2 years. No critters in the vehicle, Bob had placed Irish Spring soap and dryer sheets in the car.
Other then a dead battery she fired up a lot easier then I had expected.
Thanks Bob for your help on Monday
