Soap Keeps Mice AwayI live in a mobile home in the country, where mice are a problem. They crawl up through openings where pipes enter the building, build nests all over and even chew the stuffing out of the seats in car and pickups. I tried using traps and cats but the mice kept coming back.
Then I started using Irish Spring bath soap bars as a repellant. I cut the bars into fourths and place them wherever mice might travel, such as inside closets and basements and under the seats of vehicles. The mice nibble at the bars but donít like them and then stay away. I havenít tried using other soap brands. (Tom Ambuehl, 1284 JapEvans Rd., Shelby, Mont. 59474 ph 406 450-1452)
