Re: Tips on washing wooden pet 'furniture'

Besides baking soda,moisturizing soap is often what is best to use in this regard...

Re: Tips on washing wooden pet 'furniture'

I cover all wooden toys with plasticote so they are protected and become easy to wipe clean

Re: Tips on washing wooden pet 'furniture'

Old post, since then i got rid of the wood furniture. I tried plastikote but i didn't find it worked but i think it was due to the fact my 4 'females' were all male. They still have twigs/branches to chew on for their teeth and i just replace these when they start smelling

Re: Tips on washing wooden pet 'furniture'

I used to use wooden houses and hideouts for my rodents and found they go to smell pretty quickly.Some of them would go mouldy as well. So now instead of wooden ones I use cardboard boxes and packaging for them instead and just give them wooden chews for their teeth. Much cheaper (free if you use the card packing food comes in) , they get the fun of ripping the card up, you just chuck them when you clean the cage, and cos their easily replaced they get a new 'toy' every week!
