What cleans up mouse mess?

My plow truck sat most the summer into fall and the mice found it to be a nice place to live. Every surface was "coated" in mouse mess and my glove box was used as a septic tank. (theres about 1" of sludge in the bottom) I pulled the seat and carpet out and im gonna order a rubber floor mat and i have a new seat. What can i use to scrub the cab with to get rid of the mouse smell and bio-hazzards?

Get it hosed out the mix water and bleach 1/2 & 1/2 use a pump garden spayer or hand jobber. Hit it let it air out repeat. Good luck!

Doesn't roll with anyone or tag along to be cool...

Make sure you wear a mask or something when doing anything that deals with mouse crap because I heard of a guy my uncle knew that did something like what your talking about and he got all of it cleaned up that day but he inhaled a bunch of that crap and he ended up dying that night because of that mouse crap.

yes, be extremely careful when cleaning this up, you can contract the hanta virus from mouse fieces and it will kill you, wear protective gear and a respirator of somesort

What they said. Please be VERY careful. You should have a respirator, and tyvek suit, gloves, goggles. May not be what you want to hear, but you may want to think about getting it professionally cleaned.
