Share you savannah/mouse storoes??

I'm th8nking mango has left a present under a cabinet or behind one in the kitchen... sending my husband on that treasure hunt tonight...

We've never seen a mouse in our home before, but something in here smells dead.

We've bleached everything, no longer store trash inside and thrown out anything perishable with no avail....

The odor might also be coming from a drain...try pouring a bit of bleach flushed with water down every drain if you haven't already....if your refrigerator has a drain pan underneath it, check that as well. I hope it's not a small furry body in your walls or heating/cooling ducts!

Ugh..... Our dishwasher has been broken and out of service for nearly two weeks (Thanks, speedy geek squad repair team). One of its issues is a drain that doesn't drain... and an inch of soiled water in the bottom. I figured keeping the door shut would isolate the odor... so i haven't dared open it.

Think that may be my culprit?

Absolutely! I bet that's your dead mouse ;)

Suggestions for abatement until repair finally happens... a week from today
You could brave opening the door yourself. Keep your pets out of the kitchen, and open any windows. Arm yourself with a spray bottle of bleach and water mix: I'd suggest 1 part bleach to 8 parts water. Spray the standing water at the bottom and the sides, or dump 1/8 cup of bleach into the water and shut the door to the dishwasher. The odor might be coming from the non-functioning drain, so this may or may not help until the repairman arrives....is there anyone else you can call to look at it sooner?

Ugh, that really sucks! At least if it is the dishwasher it will be resolved in the next week. If it is a decaying mouse in the walls only time will resolve it - a lot more time than one week!
