Put on a pair of disposable coveralls, clear safety glasses, rubber gloves and a dust mask.
Climb into the attic through the entry hole or stairwell.
Stuff all insulation into garbage bags. Walk only on the ceiling joists. Avoid walking on the drywall ceiling, because you can fall through it. Some insulation rolls up and other insulation (blown-in) is in pieces that you'll have to scoop up with a shovel.
Remove the garbage bags from the attic.
Bring a shop vacuum into the attic. Plug it in to a power outlet.
Vacuum every inch of the drywall ceiling. Vacuum along the edges where the drywall is attached to the ceiling joists. Vacuum wherever you can visibly see mouse droppings until the drywall ceiling is free of droppings.
