Re: Brushes to clean cages

I use car cleaning mits sprayed down with 50/50 vinegar/water solution. Works very well!!

Re: Brushes to clean cages

I use a handheld steamer with a small brush attachment. It works like magic. I use it for the cage as well as the tree stands.

Re: Brushes to clean cages

Me too a hand held steamer with brushes as needed. Toys, perches bowls everything gets the steam clean action, usually to upbeat music when Syd has retired for the night.

If I think about it I set my hair too - I'm a great multi tasker!

Re: Brushes to clean cages

I've tried a lot of brushes and ultimately gone with a sponge that has a rough side.

Re: Brushes to clean cages

I actually found some great brushes in the rodent isle of pet smart!! They get between the bars (really good for tiny bar spacing).

Otherwise, steam cleaner all the way!! I use it without any of the "soap" that comes with it, just water, and it works amazingly.

Re: Brushes to clean cages

I use the exact brushes above, great for scraping poop off perches and cleaning in between bars. Otherwise, a damp sponge with a little Poop-Off usually does the trick. I find taking the bottom grate into the bathtub and scrubbing it thoroughly really helps.

Re: Brushes to clean cages

Some interesting products - the multi-shaft brush seems like a good idea ! Too bad I just got back from there, replenshing some parrot and dogiie toys. Got to remember to get one on next visit. The grate for Saltys daytime boing/ play chain is a hard chrome plated bar-b-que grill and washes off with hot water and the 36" diameter stainless bowl under that also cleans up with poop off or hot watter and paper towel. We also use a Scotchbrite sponge for anything else. First they are used for people dishes and then devolve to parrot use, before getting chucked .

All Living Things Bird Cage Scrubber. With enough elbow grease you could strip paint with this!

Re: Brushes to clean cages

I take my bird's cage outside and hose it down. I then use a wire brush for the bottom where the poop gets caked on.

I know it's not great for the coating but I'm lazy and I get frustrated scrubbing ;-)
