This is popular thread this time of year. The popular choice last year
was original "Irish Spring" soap, the green stripped variety. I think
the directions are
to slice the bar into a cheese cloth bag and place several in seats,
behind seats, engine etc. Anywhere a critter could make a nest. I tried
it last year when I changed from moth balls and didnt have any critter
problem and the car smelled much better in the spring.
