What do you put in for stuffing in a draught excluder?

We desperately need a draught excluder for one of our doors! I've looked on T'internet and the ones you buy have got sand in them, or lentils/rice. Ok, where the H do you get SAND from - a beach?! And if you used lentils or rice, wouldn't mice/creatures come and have a nibble? Any other ideas out there?
Thanks. Shiver shiver shiver...

i used a load of rags for mine (to be specific, I sorted out my underwear drawer and used old clean knickers and socks! grin)

I used rags, plastic bags, any old crap recyclables which was lying about, basically!

I've used rolled up newspaper inside old clothes before (nightie!). Also cut up trouser legs, rolled them and stitched them. It workedgrin

Dried out rice, you have to dry it in the cooker at a low heat for an hour. You can also add little sachets of dessicant gel (v poisonous btw - do not write into zombie plan 'eat rice from draught excluder')
