Thanks for that. I might have to look at actual bait stations/cages I have tried using baits before but dp doesn't like me using them because of dd2(2yo), our dog and all the cats in the area. Don't tell him but I still use them. I think it's going to be hard to get rid of them totally because we live semi rurally and all our neighbours have birds and chickens all around us. Even though they all have cats too. Lazy things. The mice drive me absolutely nuts.
I store our pots and pans and frying pans etc upside down so they can't walk all over them. At least they aren't rats I guess.

Did one round with the oven last night, but it seems it was just the tip of the iceberg, going to have a go again when I get a bulk lot of bi carb on grocery day!
Tonight I will catch up on the microwave.
Luckily I was already in the process of rearranging my kitchen storage as we have limited storage and are a family of hoarders and collectors!

Haha don't worry! This morning was the first time I'd ever cleaned an oven. We bought our place about 7 years ago, and I'd lived out of home for a few years before that. But you know I don't think I'd ever seen my mum clean the oven either so I had no idea how to do it until katiesmum posted the bicarb tip. Cover it with a layer of bicarb, spray water on to moisten, leave overnight then scrape off the dried bicarb in the morning and give it a scrub. worked pretty well - it's not perfect but there's a definite improvement.

if the oven is too much of a task ... skip it.
I put it in as I couldnt have a whole 'clean your kitchen' thing without mentioning it ... but its not essential.
I have to admit - I rarely clean mine. But then, I do have a silicon mat in the bottom and I clean that regularly. But I also use my oven a lot. If its not used that much, it wouldnt need cleaning that often ...

9th June – Cutlery and Utensil Drawers
Take everything out and give the drawer a wipe down. Toss anything you don’t use or that is broken.
Plastic, silicone, and rubber kitchen utensils are easily stained. To remove these marks, make a baking soda paste and apply it to the stained areas using a scouring pad, sponge, or rag. Similarly, if you have stained plastic food containers for storing leftovers, use the same method. You can make the baking soda paste out of water or lemon juice, which will add a clean, fresh scent.
A stiff pastry brush or an old (clean) toothbrush are great for cleaning food remnants from your grater.

I have done this one earlier in the thread. The drawer was grotty underneath!

the problem is that many of you eager beavers have already done some of these.
In punishment - you can think of some extra chores to do
