Getting up dried poop without chemicals?

I just found out I am sensitive to chemicals and have to stop using a LOT of stuff. What is safe for cleaning my cage bottoms?

Dried Poop
by: Linda

The Pet Focus sounds great, and we've been using another one made by Kaytee called EZCare Quick Clean, and it comes in spray bottle size, and you can buy the gallon size to refill the spray bottle. It is used by spraying it on the grates and bottom trays. Let it sit on surfaces for about 10 minutes, use a stiff nylon brush to brush off excess poop, and rinse till clean.

We've been using this for a while now, and it is non-toxic, so it can be used inside or outside. Use it on cage grates, trays, toys perches and so on. Don't spray any kind of cleaner while birds are in cage as any of them will hurt their eyes if it gets in them.

I'm also going to look into the one Tracie talked about as well since our gallon jug of Kaytee is getting low. I like the EZCare Quick Clean because it does work and cuts work time on grates in half or better.

Thanks for writing, and I also am allergic to most household cleaners, so am always looking for better ways to clean.

Non Toxic bird cage cleaner +

I actually use the Pet Focus Cleanser to clean everything in my house accept the mirrors!

Because it is NOT a chemical formula, you have to let it sit a few minutes on items that you are attempting to kill germs. It also has to sit on stuck on poop to soften it.

The EPA certifies Pet Focus Cleanser as a one-step formula (rinse-free). This is not to say anyone should drink the stuff, just that the small amount they would lick would not be toxic for them.

100% Guarantee Effective: effective against mildew and over 50 pathogens. Kills both gram negative and gram positive bacteria. Is effective against Pseudomonas, Steptococccus pyogenes, Klebsiella pneumoniae, Enterobacter aerogenes, Avian Polyomavirus, Chlamydia, Infectious Avian Brochitis, E-Coli, Klebsiella, Bordetella, Newcastle?s Disease, Staph, Samonella typhi, HIV-1, Herpes Simples Type 1 and Type 2 and much more.
