Ordinary dryer sheets won't do. Only Bounce works as a mouse repellent.

We were having trouble with a mouse infestation in our camper. We placed Bounce regular scent dryer sheets in the drawers and cabinets. All the mice left quickly.

We tried generic brand dryer sheets, but they didn’t work — no mouse repellent effect whatsoever.
