    During the remodeling project, we found a nest. What is the best, safest way to clean up the mouse droppings?

    Bleach water and kilz paint?

    Sioux, that's the way I have done it for years, and some of the houses have been mountain cabins. Before we could use them. shadowwalker

    Be sure you use a respirator -- NOT a "dust mask" when you clean them up. Mice carry hanta virus and other nasties.
