So, I'm cleaning out the toy basket Sunday night (I know, Rock& Roll) and I smell this funky smell coming about half way down. We've got mice so I'm worried to dig any deeper and call OH over. A few toy shuffles later and sure enough he uncovers a dessicated, shriveled dead mouse amongst the toys. The worst thing is that it's obviously been there a while because bodily liquids have leaked onto some things. We threw out the obvious victims that had been leaked on. For the plastic and even wooden toys, I put them through a boiling water & bleach bath and a hot wash in the washing machine for the stuffed animals. We're even taking Ballet Barbie's dress to the dry cleaners - no joke - and gave all the Barbie type dolls a good bleach wipe down.
Is this enough??
I'm especially worried because we've had pest control in and the mice are obviously eating the poison and don't want any nasties passed on to my babes.
