I'm pretty sure the soap was around $5. Certainly no more than $8, but I can check when I get home.

Not bad, especially considering you've hardly made a dent in over a year!




I thought I'd add for anyone reading that cleaning with vinegar does kill off many bacteria but not all. Nothing beats good ol' fashioned hot soapy water.  So it may be a good idea to use an unscented soap (I use Dawn dish soap) now and then too.  Very Happy

F10 is safe to use. It also kills bacteria causing bad odors.

F10 works very well. I spray /wipe toys and cage with it.
Its perfectly safe and kills bacteria that causes the smell.

I use Nature's Miracle Cage Cleaner in a spray for Mickey's tank. I spray a bit in and use a wet paper towel to wipe the whole tank. Then I rinse the paper towel and wipe the tank down again, and rinse the paper towel one more time and wipe the tank. Then I use a dry paper towel to dry it. I've been using this for quite a long time and have never had a problem. For his cage accessories I just use plain old hot water.

We've used white vinegar with no dilution for the past two years with nothing but good results. We break the cage down and spray it profusely then allow it to sit for about 15 minutes then rinse with hot water and towel dry. No traces of a vinegar smell or any other smell.
