Technique:

1. Place newspaper all around and under the cage. Remove toys, wheels, food trays, etc.

2. Remove all the bedding and clean the bottom using the animal safe cleaner and rinse with water. Roll up the newpaper with all the bedding and throw in garbage.

3. Clean all the toys,  food trays and wheels.  Do not use soap on food trays just warm or hot water and a rag or sponge.
