Okay, this is embarrassing, but maybe you can provide some opinions. I went through a period when I suddenly had mice, probably coming from an excavation next door. I later had the nervous feeling that at one point they may have been inhabiting my oven. I couldn't really see for sure, but I feel like the whole thing has been irreparably contaminated, that there are nooks and crannies in the stove interior that can't possibly ever be cleaned. I know we don't put food directly on the oven itself, but it just feels like a mouse-fog.
Do you agree? This is a big deal, because I don't forsee being able to get a new one in the immediate future.
