Cat and dog food bags make excellent mouse-proof storage containers.

After emptying your cat, dog or livestock food bags, you can reuse the empty sacks for sorting and transporting recyclable items. The bags don’t rip when they get wet and can be used several times.

You can also use them for storing items, because mice usually can’t chew through them. To keep them closed, you can sew the tops together, or fold them over and use clips to hold them in place.
