I was wondering if there's anyway to reduce mouse odor without scented bedding or any added scents, I was thinking of adding a sand bath like I did for my past hamster as long as sand baths are safe for mice. I thought of the sand bath simply because my mouse luna tends to get her poo stuck in her fur and trying to get it out with stressing her can be timely and tests my patience Laughing Laughing but as for cage odor, should I simply clean the cage more often, or is litter training an option?

If you haven't read this yet, it is helpful...

PMF - Cleaning, Odor, and Bedding

I purchased an air purifier which helps tremendously. But you want one that is a True HEPA air purifier. I actually have two, a Honeywell HPA 200 and a Coway:

Honeywell HPA 200

Coway Mighty Air Purifier

Charcoal air purifier bags work for some folks...

There are some additives you can buy for their water but I'm hesitant to try it. This is one that was recommended to me...

Bi-Odor for Small Animals

This is another product I have not tried yet. It seems safe. I have the bottle I just haven't gotten around to try it yet...

No Scent

Some people say adding vanilla to their water helps, too.

I don't know how long you've had your mice, but my 3 males stunk so badly for the first 1 - 2 months I had them I was in despair.

Now it seems they are secure and content in their new homes, thus don't spend all their time marking. For the last few weeks, the smell is virtually gone unless I stick my face in their bins. I also use an air purifier.

My little Fig's pen has a very distinct smell but I don't mind it, it's just kinda a mild odour. He is only a baby and I've only had him 2 weeks, so I dont know if he'll get more smelly as he gets older, or less as he adjusts to his new cage and doesn't scent it up as much. He himself doesn't have any odour. I only cleaned his cage once so far with several spot cleans, and after I did a full cleaning I left about 1 handful of old bedding in his cage, mostly around where he sleeps, so he wouldn't freak out and do extra marking. That seemed to help.
