    Disinfecting Coroplast

    Hey everyone!

    I have a piggie, Luna, that is recovering from a URI in a 2x4 C&C cage. Once she is totally healed, I will be introducing her to my other guinea pig, Lola. Just to be sure that Lola doesn't pick up a URI from any lingering bacteria--what is the best way to disinfect coroplast? Is a bleach solution safe to use? I'm just not sure what compounds are safe to use on coroplast. Thanks in advance for your help!

    Vinegar and water will do fine.

    Coroplast is nearly indestructible, though. If you really needed to, you could pour bleach directly on it. But that's way overkill for what you need.

    I do a full cage clean weekly and have used a variety of products to clean the coroplast including vinegar & water, glass cleaner, bleach, etc. My favorite is the disinfecting wipes with bleach which seem to do a good job of cleaning and disinfecting. It goes without saying that I make sure the coro is dry before putting the piggies back in the cage.

    I clean with 50/50 vinegar and water in a spray bottle. You don't even need to rinse like you have to with harsh chemicals. Just wipe dry. It's safe.
