    just wondering what you guys use to sanitize your cages.
    right now im using diluted pinesol (1/2 cup per gallon)
    i spray it on with a sprayer and let it sit a bit then rinse it off and let it dry.
    btw, i use all wire cages.

    I only use wire cages and this is what I do..
    I flame the cage with a propane torch,then brush with a wire brush,then dunk it in a container of bleach water,then hose it off and let air dry..
    It is then really for a new Rabbit..the whole thing only takes about 20 minutes..

    To sanitize/disinfect my wire cages I use a mild bleach water solution after vacumming out the cage with a shop vac. I rinse and dry well.

    For day-to-day cleaning, I use a vinegar water solution.
