Default HELP!!! Mice got to my priming sugar

As you can see by the thread topic, mice got to my priming sugar, and I'm ready to bottle. I've got a few hours to kill before I actually start bottling, as Im waiting for bottles to clean up (working on that). My local HBS is closed for the night, and I'd rather not wait till tomorrow, can I use regular sugar? or anything that I can get from my local grocery store that I can substitute?

Thanks

FrewBrew

Do you have any DME laying around? If you do, use 1.25 cups of that. If you have to make due with table sugar you can.

Either bottle 2mrw or just use the table sugar.
I always use normal white sugar. No problems. for the small amount for each bottle I don't think it would effect the taste.

Wait and get another stash of CS.

This stuff is great to store in those old aluminum flour/sugar cans...

Do not use corn syrup from the store, it tends to have flavorings in it. Since we are only talking 4 oz., use table sugar.
