Mouse-safe varnish for waterproofing wood? Empty Mouse-safe varnish for waterproofing wood?

I'm building a playhouse for my mice out of popsicle sticks but wanted to waterproof it with some sort of clear varnish so that their pee/poop doesn't instantly ruin it. I picked up Deft Interior Clear Wood Finish Lacquer: amazon.com/Deft-037125017132-Interior-Lacquer-12-25-Ounce/dp/B0016KXBU4/ref=asc_df_B0016KXBU4/?tag=hyprod-20&linkCode=df0&hvadid=167138874211&hvpos=1o2&hvnetw=g&hvrand=5286659286440341643&hvpone=&hvptwo=&hvqmt=&hvdev=c&hvdvcmdl=&hvlocint=&hvlocphy=9060556&hvtargid=pla-307068315263&psc=1

It says it's baby-safe, water-based, and non-toxic when dry. I first found it in the Hamster Hideout forum. Any thoughts on this or a better recommendation? I definitely don't want to risk this harming them in any way.

I mean if it's baby-safe (knowing how much they put stuff in their mouth) I'm sure it'd be great! I would keep an eye  out for excessive chewing (although uncommon it can happen), but I'm sure a nibble or two wouldn't hurt if the case may be.

I might actually look into it myself lol...

Yes, baby-safe/water-based/non-toxic = safe for our little guys.
