They have the appearance of chocolate sprinkles or the size of grains of rice. So how do you clean mouse droppings in the kitchen?

Before you start cleaning the mouse feces, make sure all the windows and if possible doors are open as well. Ventilation plays a very big role in making sure that everything happens safely. Leave the doors and windows open for at least 30 minutes.

Wear protective equipment. Gloves and masks should be the minimum to get started on cleaning the mouse droppings.  You do not want to touch the mouse droppings with bare hands as you may inadvertently touch your face or your mouth.

Now what you want to do is soak the feces in disinfectant. You can buy a pre-mixed one from the store or be a little bit creative and make your own mixture. Make sure the space is adequately ventilated when you do decide to make a DIY disinfectant which you can find online.

Now to cleaning the mouse. Do not use the broom or the dustpan, but simply wipe them up with a paper towel this is because they are easy to pick up since they are moist.

Depending on the number of mouse droppings, this might be a very easy job, but this is rarely the case because of agile mice are.
