cleaning wooden toys

Post by qwerty on Mon 26 Feb 2018, 6:25 am

Does anyone know of a way other than boiling or baking to clean wooden toys? Since the ones I have are held together by glue, they would fall apart if I used either of those methods.

Cleaning or sanitizing? If I need to sanitize something because a mouse might've been ill, I just bake them or throw them away. Not much you can do other than that.

But for a light cleaning, I like to just use some cage cleaning spray from the pet store or a mild soap/water mix and lightly wipe the wood toy with the cleaning solution on a cloth/paper towel to get as much pee/poo off as possible, and it helps remove some of the scent. Then I allow it to dry overnight.

If the toy is really dirty or if your mouse was ill, I think it is best to just throw it away.

I also have some wood toys I got on amazon I had to clean the other day. I brought the bridge I had to the sink and wiped it down with dish soap and water and made sure to scrub the poo off. The water will soak into the wood and vaporize the smell so it'll smell awful at first; I'd recommend leaving it by an open window or outside if you can and let it dry overnight. I noticed a significant difference in smell once it dried down.

Other than that I think wood objects have a definite time limit for smell as wood is just naturally porous! Possibly in the future I may bake the house I have and glue it back together to save money ...

Hope this helps Cool

After a quick scrub, I soak wooden things in water with some vinegar added for around an hour or so, then rinse and let dry. The only trouble I’ve had doing this is anything dyed will run/fade. But for me this helps stretch out the use of wooden toys some. Eventually they need to be tossed though.
