Unscented soap? Empty Unscented soap?

Post by River Thu 21 Jul 2016, 5:01 pm

I've just been using a mildly scented soap and rinsing it till it no longer smells like much but water. Is unscented soap absolutely necessary, or...?

Also, General Health says preventative care, and I was wondering what exactly you can do to prevent illnesses and the like??

Mildly scented soap won't hurt the mice. However, if they don't like the way that it smells, they may not be willing to climb onto your hands. Also, depending on the smell, they may think you have food on your hands and bite you. So, those are the reasons for using unscented soap.

Preventative care covers topics that include things that keep your mouse healthy such as healthy food, filtered water, clean environment, using proper bedding, safe cages, etc. There is going to be some overlap in other topic areas with some of these things.
