Cage Cleansers

Postby Amorice » Tue Nov 25, 2008 12:44 pm

What products do you use to clean your flyer's cage? I purchased a wet wipe-type product designed for bird cages, and it works okay, but the scent is.... less than desirable (its unscented, but the natural smell of it is... pretty close to a dirty cage). My mother used to buy a line of cleaning products that were safe for animals, so safe you could practically drink the stuff, but I can't find it anymore. I need something to wipe up the plastic bottom of the cage, because Ichigo will rip the newspaper away from her favorite "spot", and go on the plastic. Any recamendations?

Great, thanks! I should have figured that baking soda would be a good cleanser; I use it for just about everything else! Cage is nice & clean, yay!

We ran out of cage cleaner this weekend, so I used Veggie Wash to finish up. It worked great!

I use a strong vinegar+water mixture for the plexiglass doors on my cage. It seems to cut through the alkaline-based scum pretty well, and it dries with very little odor. I hope to take the whole thing out and hose it down in the spring, scrubbing with baking soda and lots of water!

has anybody used baby wipes as a temporary cleaning (until spring when you can take outside).
i guess what i'm asking is would it be safe to use. :?
