    I'm not familiar with anything using dryer sheets as a mouse deterrent, but mint/mint oil is a great deterrent.

    You do not really know for sure. The latest thing I have heard is to use peppermint tea bags, once they are used and dried. I intend to try the tea bags or buy a small bottle of peppermint flavoring to try, put some on cotton balls and place them wherever you do not want the mice to go. I even tried the sensors you plug in. They were expensive and did not work.

    I've had good luck with dryer sheets. I buy the stickiest, cheapest ones I can find and just lay them on top of the drawer/shelf contents. I don't know if it's the smell or the feel of them on their little feet, but it seems to keep them out for up to six month. I opened an unused drawer that didn't get "sheeted" and, oh, my, they had had parties in there. I've also put them in my car, including under the hood, and it kept them out. Just put a sticky note on the steering wheel to remind you before you start the motor when you get back.
