[DML] Re: Nasty smell still.

Hi, I'm assuming that you've spent some time crawling around the car 
trying to localize the odour?  

If the odour is coming from the interior of the car itself you could:

- re shampoo the interior, but add some Febreeze and vinegar* to your 
solution, and/or spray the entire carpeting with several mistings of 
Febreeze (you want to find the sweet spot between soaked and soggy).  

-go to a used car dealer and ask for a "cherry bomb".  I think this 
is what they use to get the smell out of used cars, especially 
cigarette and cigar smoke.

Wasn't there a similar posting recently about someone who sprayed a 
can of Lysol trough their outside inlet (fans on high, doors open) in 
order to remove the smell of mould?  Maybe this could help.

Good luck, and let us know what eventually works for you!

*I know vinegar does a great job of neutralizing cat urine, not so 
sure about mice pee!
