After 30 days I took the mouse-repelling gadget back, having seen no evidence that the mouse even noticed it was there. With the refund I got myself a heat gun, which I am using to continue the paint-stripping project. It is much easier to get paint off cylindrical table legs with a heat gun than with chemical strippers. They'll still need sanding afterward, though. Cleanup is also much easier; you get a pile of dry paint chips instead of a pile of toxic goo.
