    Dear All,
    Can someone tell me a good way to disinfect a use cage? I bought a couple of used hutch's from a guy, and I would like to disinfect them real good before I put my rabbits in them.

    Thanks
    Kisota

    Put Bleach in water, a wire brush, lots of elbow grease.. and the best disinfectant of all... Sunshine! let the hutch dry out.

    If the bottom wire is full of hair and manure.. then use a torch on it. The torch is very quick as it burns all the stuff from between the wire. Then you can brush it off, but you said hutch and hutch usually means wood.. so becareful with the torch.
