    Hi Carole, were you able to find and get rid of the dead mouse? If you can, get rid of it and make a bleach/water solution. Spray the area around where the mouse was found.

    It's the worst. An Odor Sponge was my solution. Even better if you can find, remove and disinfect the area.

    You've gotten some good advice already. I'll add that you should make sure you have some traps out because if you have one mouse, you likely have many mice. I'd also do a perimeter check around your house to fill in any small cracks or holes that might exist--mice can get through spots as small as 1/4".

    Be very careful when dealing with mouse urine, it can carry Hanta Virus which can be fatal. So wear rubber gloves, and a good mask, throw your clothes in the wash after cleaning up. If the place smells really bad, get Room Shocker from a home store like Home Depot. This what contractors use for houses with bad odors.

    Hello Carol,

    You could try Febreze for fabric and shake and Vac, but if this fails go for a Steam clean............Best wishes

    Hi Carole: First of all, ick! :) If you have removed the mouse, you can use a product called OdorMute. It's an enzyme eater and should work on the smells, too. You can get it on line. However, any enzyme eater should work.Be very careful, and use a mask when working in the area and maybe put a bit of Vicks under your nose when doing this to keep down the smell. Good luck
