I was talking with one of my more senior patients about bugs and mice and Irish Spring Soap. She remembered an old homemade Bug Spray they would make that lasted up to 80 days. She was told it was from Paul Harvey. She went home and found the receipe and here it is:
1 large bottle cheap blue mouthwash.
3 cups Epson Salt
3 stale (?flat?) 12 oz cheap beers
Mix until salt dissolves, put into sprayer and use where ever. I was informed it was not harmful to plants or pets.

Anyone hear of this concoction or was she pulling my leg?

What I had to do to keep mice and other rodents out was to go over the entire underside of the coach and plug all holes and gaps with stainless steel wool, tried foam insulation... the buggers just ate that, also use the Irish Spring soap bars.
