    Cleaning For Fungal Infection/Mites

    How do you clean for a fungal infection/mites (the vet isn't sure what it is).
    I've already cleaned the bedding with detergent along with some vinegar.
    Should I re-wash them and use a tiny amount of bleach instead?

    And with the actual cage, should I use a tiny bit of bleach mixed with water to clean it? Or will the usual vinegar and water suffice?

    Fungus requires more work to get rid of than mites. See www.guinealynx.info/fungus.html and www.guinealynx.info/mites.html for cage cleaning information.
