#53813 - 08/11/05 09:57 PM I'm getting a nylon mesh cage....soo....

[:"purple"] Okay here's the deal.
I'm getting a 6 foot tall nylon mesh cage for my soon to be VERY FIRST glidy male. Being as its...fabric mesh, I can't really take a babywipe or Lysol wipe and scrub it down each day. It's machine washable, however. So..should I just wash it in the washing machine every couple of day while my glider is in the bonding pouch with me?
Also --- are lysol wipes okay for cleaning his plastic toys? Or should I just wipe em down? [/] <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/thanx.gif" alt="" />

Are you speaking about a Reptarium? If not, where are you purchasing this cage from?

If it is a rept, than yes, many take them down and throw them in the wash and hang them up to dry and it works out well. I would only wash it once a week or biweekly though as overcleaning tends to cause gliders to feel they have to mark more and then we have the *smell* around.

As for their toys, with mine, I just fill the tub with water once every other week, put a little bleach in it, throw the toys in there and let them soak about 10-20 minutes and then go scrub them up rinse them off and set them in the sun to dry.

If you want to know what a person is like, watch how he treats others.

You'll never know what the outcome is if you don't step up and try.

I use clorox wipes for the toys when they get gross between the bleachings! As long as it is dry before they play with them it is okay.
Who are you networked with? Networking could save your gliders life. Create one now.

sounds great! I can do all of that.
And yes, I was speaking of a reptarium.
