How Hydrogen Peroxide Can Fix Your Unsightly Mouse Dropping Problem
Once in your house, rats and mice can leave behind droppings that pose health risks. Luckily, you can use hydrogen peroxide to clean up the droppings and disinfect the surfaces.
Before you get started, don rubber (or plastic) gloves and a face mask to prevent contamination. You can also throw open the windows and doors in the room to boost ventilation.
Next, spritz the droppings with a solution of 3% hydrogen peroxide followed by white vinegar. Scoop up the waste with a paper towel, put it in a garbage bag, tie it, and dump it.
Spray the floors, countertops, and shelves with the hydrogen peroxide solution and white vinegar to kill any lingering bacteria. Use a paper towel to wipe down the surfaces.
