Want an inexpensive solution to clean/disinfect your cages and make them smell good, all at the same time?

Cage cleaning solution for Sugar Gliders:

Vinegar cleaning solution with Eucalyptus scent

1/2 cup distilled white vinegar
1/2 cup water
12-24 drops of eucalyptus essential oil

This will make 8 ounces, so multiply the ingredient amounts as needed to fit the size of your spray bottle. This is a 1:1 ratio of vinegar to water.

I will def have to try this. Now do you wipe off the vinegar and water or just let it dry? Sorry, might be a silly question lol.

I've heard a lot of people leave the vinegar on their cages. I was rinsing mine off for a long time, but the smell never got any better. Leaving it on to dry seems to help the smell more.
