What are these black things I found in and/or on some dishes, cups and utensils in my kitchen?

@maxdancona,
I'm not using bleach on dishes, cups, or on eating, cooking and baking utensils.

Baking soda is non-toxic and a good cleaning agent and disinfectant. You can use it in conjunction with vinegar and water.

It sounds like Mouse ****. How the mice get in is irrelevant, they got in, they’re in your house.

@chai2,
Thank you.

And FYI mice are flexible enough that they may be squeezing into the hole where the gas line or electrical line comes in

@knaivete,
Wow! I thought I had seen all the Gumby shows. I missed this one.

I always have a slight feeling of unease watching Gumby. It’ Delightfully weird and frightening.

After Eddie Murphy played in the skit (I call) “I’m Gumby Dammit!” my thinking of Gumby forever is altered. The fact he uses an angry Yiddishkite accent just slays me.

What’s wrong with washing up liquid? Why the need to make your own?

How would a mouse get in an oven if the oven door and drawer is closed?


My oven has a door that opens up on the front, near the floor, and a compartment on the outside of the front underneath the door with a pull-out drawer.

The oven door has to be pulled down to open it.

You really never looked at an oven or even know how ovens work? Plus ...

There are many holes and crevices in the back of an oven. You bloody need them to get the fuel hoses, etc... from the house into the oven. Rolling Eyes

Bleach is a strong disinfectant. Baking soda is not a disinfectant.

Bleach is also water soluble, which makes it pretty good for cleaning mouse droppings, and then washing it all away afterwards.

Even as a child, I always felt a tad uneasy around Gumby. Like the people making it were on LSD and having a slightly bad trip.

Oh yeah, Eddie Murphys Gumby was gold.

@tsarstepan,
I was trying to figure out how the mouse would get into in my oven, that's why I described the over door and compartment drawer. There must be a small opening in the back of the oven that a mouse could squeeze into.

@JGoldman10,
Most stoves are rather open in the back. Since it normally is against a wall, not too much material is needed back there.

You can make a disinfectant spray solution with baking soda, vinegar, soap and water:

How do you know bleach residue isn't going to be left on stuff after you clean with bleach?

This guy really concerns me; what insect, rodent and general vermin/pest does he not have in his kitchen?

Goldman ..... Strip everything out, everything, even the BBQ sauce that only run out of date in 2012 ..... Throw all the contents of your cupboards away, throw all the garbage out of your house, throw out any carpeting ... Get in exterminators and clean the damned place ... then start afresh.

It's repugnant. I actually don't care what problems you have, no one needs to live in filth. How the hell do people live in this obvious squalor? Bleach is not expensive ... so buy a few gallons.

@Teufel,
When my charming brother was around he pulled up part of the wood that forms the foundation under the back door of my home in my kitchen to be nasty. He made a hole in the foundation. That's probably how the pests got in.

@JGoldman10,
Then you must take action and find a way to repair it.

Furthermore, Isn’t it you who told us that your home is at risk of being condemned? That means that the community and/or the city is aware of the risk your home is to others as well as to your health and safety. Get a grip, man, before you end up homeless or ill!

I have to be the man of the house while my mom is still in rehab. She's been in rehab since November 2019. Thank you for your concern.
