Re: [DML] Re: Nasty smell still.

It would be a good idea to wear a mask while cleaning out all the mouse debris as 
they can leave Hantavirus behind.  Not trying to alarm people but it's not only in the 
southwest part of the country.

  Let me take a stab at that smell problem.  I had a similar problem and
  it was also caused by mice.  In my case, it wasn't mice urine, but
  mice decomposing after death.  I had put out some mice/rat poison near
  the car during the winter storage.  Obviously they ate some of it, but
  I could never really determine where the smell was coming from. 

  Finally I opened the little door in the front of the luggage
  compartment where the tools are stored and found all sorts of clues
  that the mice had been in there.  I attached a long hose to the shop
  vac and stuck it in that hole and worked it around so that it even
  turned the corner on the passenger side and went into the front
  pontoon.  You can't imagine the stuff I got out of there.  (In fact,
  you don't want to imagine that stuff!)

  After the clean out, I sprayed the inside of that area as best I could
  with Fabreze.  That was a year ago and the smell is gone and has not

  Hope this might help if you still haven't found where the mice made
  their nest.
