I was just wondering how pine being kiln dried makes pine safe? I got this question recently so I'd like to answer it a little better. Does it just take away the piney smell, or is there something more scientific to it? Lol

The heat process helps remove the oils that causes problems.

Kiln Dried removes the harmful oils that pine produces.

Oh okay haha I often comment on pictures of guinea pigs and cages on Pinterest and Instagram (especially if I see something wrong), just trying to spread the word in a positive way about proper guinea pig care and this site. So I also sometimes get into "debates" with other people. Lol Right now I'm talking to a former pet store owner. It started because she was recommending grid bottom cages so that long haired guinea pigs won't walk through their litter and get matted. ...*sigh* I had a lot of things to say about that.

Thanks guys for helping me! :)
