How do you guys clean your wooden perches? These ones smell horrible and I don't know what to use to clean them.

when I had perches in the cages I would soak them in a bleach/water solution and than rinse extremely well and allow it to dry in the sun. However, if it is holding smell really strongly, you may want to consider just tossing those out and buying some new ones. <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/thumb.gif" alt="" />

Thanks <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/laugh.gif" alt="" /> I don't have a dishwasher but I didn't know if bleach solutions were ok.. I'll just be very careful when I rinse them. Thanks again.

I just take a sponge and wash mine down with an antibacterial dishwashing liquid, and I "rinse rinse rinse" with cold water until there are no more bubbles, and then let air dry.

I wash mine with the bleach and a scrubbie, then rinse like crazy.

I do a presoak in very diluted bleach water and antibacterial soap. Then, I put them in the dishwasher. Since you don't have one, I recommend the first part and also SunCoast sells a nice antibacterial spray for 6.00 or so. It's a large bottle. They also sell a product called "Canopy." I like their description of calling it "Pam" (that cooking spray) for glider mess. After I am done all of the above, I spray canopy on a papertowel and rub a layer on the perches.

I put mine in the bath tub and use our steam cleaner on it. It takes a bit of work but I steam until there's no more yucky colored water resulting from the steam, then I rinse with cold water and let dry.

I make perch covers that slide on and off and can be thrown in the washer. And I made it so thatyou can hang toys from them for double use <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="" /> PM me for more info <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="" /> Otherwise, before I made the covers I used the dishwasher method and it worked good but wasn't as pretty.
