Sorry, I have advice and experience that totally contradicts yours. My experiences with mice taught me 2 things:
1. Mice aren't repelled by dryer sheets. In fact, they nested right in the same drawer with the Bounce dryer sheets. The nest was made from all the chewed off fringe from the fancy throw pillows, and some of the chewed up bedspread.
While they didn't use the dryer sheets for the nest, they did use them to crap on...which proves they aren't repelled by them.
2. It's a lot easier to take a dead stinky mouse out of a trap, than to try to fix all the damage, clean up the horrible smelling pee stains, nests', and bear expenses involved with your new unwanted guests. Not only that...but now you have to trap them anyway.
PS...the only way I could get the pee stains/smell out of the drawers...was to sand them down.
