Re: DIY Reusable bird cage liners??

if it's in an area the bird can't really get to it you could try a washable shower curtain. it's not very absorbent so you'd have to clean it like daily / every other day or something but worth a shot maybe

You will need a solid avian disinfectant that can be used around birds without harming their sensitive respiratory systems though

I would think you just need to put it in the wash with hot (unscented) soapy water.

Re: DIY Reusable bird cage liners??

Iíve experimented with using fabric cage liners; I might go back to it honestly.

Re: DIY Reusable bird cage liners??

you could get a handful of them and just wash them all a couple times a week or something with your other clothes.

Re: DIY Reusable bird cage liners??

When I was doing this I just had a bunch. I already do laundry every 1-2 days so it was no big deal.
