Mice got into my sailbag and must have had babies. Is there anything stronger than water I can use to clean my sails? The mice also left me with 2 tiny 1/8" holes in the mainsail and a small three corner tear in the fabric tube that encloses the line in the luff side of the sail (don't know correct name for this). When I bought my boat (hull #2661) 12 years ago there was a tiny patch adhered over a tiny hole in the mainsail. It has held up fine - I'm a fairweather sailor. How bad is it for me to do this kind of repair to the new holes? if its really bad permanently, how about just to get through the rest of the season?
