Get Rid of Mice With Peppermint

You can use peppermint to get rid of mice in your house.

| June/July 2003

I recently discovered an effective yet humane way to de-mouse my pantry. We live in an old farmhouse, and at the onset of winter, mice invade our home. Our pantry is a favorite target. I put an empty box of peppermint tea in with my paper recyclables and noticed the mouse activity dropped dramatically. To get rid of mice, I now place a few squares of cotton cloth sprinkled with peppermint oil in the pantry, refreshing them as needed. No mice, and it smells wonderful!
