I've gotten a hamster before I had my cavies, so I didn't know about the 50-50 vinegar solution back then and bought Super Pet Clean Cage instead. Now, it's almost used up, so I was wondering if I buy another cage cleaner or use 50-50 vinegar to clean my hammie's cage. Unlike my cavies, he doesn't have fleece bedding, so his cage can get rather dirty, with food particles and poo.

Vinegar's just as good as purchased cage cleaner.

I agree with [MENTION=13820]bpatters[/MENTION]. The vinegar/water is probably a lot cheaper to make than the cage cleaning solution you would find at a petstore.

I agree with the 50/50 vinegar solution. My guinea pig cage just uses bedding so it can get pretty dirty too, for the tougher spots I use straight vinegar, then just wipe it down with water after so it doesn't have a chance of bothering their feet.

Vinegar and water is a lot cheaper and safe if they lick the surface.
