I use a variety of unscented baby wipes because things like Clorox and other surface-cleaning wipes may be harmful to my conure. I always make sure the wipes are strong in how they clean, and how the fabric is made. I currently use "Up and Up"'s brand of unscented baby wipes!
Mostly my steam cleaner but for really stuck on mess I use poop off, expensive and doesn't smell great (to me). Also vinegar and water as it is a deodorant and disinfectant and all natural and won't harm my precious babies.
My fids get the vinger/water solution treatment for their more frequent cleanings, and I use a bleach solution to deep clean. They each have their own cleaning supplies to avoid cross contamination as well. XD
I have an itty-bitty Budgie , but she makes quite a mess for such a tiny bird!
Her cage metal is textured, so usually it just takes a paper towel dampened with hot water to get the mess off, but if she eats a lot of fruit, I have to take her out of the cage and do a steam scrub with a brush. She really hates that!
Here is the process I used to select the winner. I assigned a number to each comment post here. Then I continued the numbering for the posts on this topic on facebook. I ran a random number generator to choose a number in the range of the total posts and corresponded that number to which post won. The number returned was 9 which corresponds to the 9th comment left on this reply page (sorry facebookers, those posts held higher numbers). Congratulations madiyogi99, you won a free bottle of Kings Cages Royal Cage Cleaner.
Toys go in the washer or dishwasher with a second rinse. Feeders and chick waterers are changed daily. I use lemon water for routine wiping of dirty feet on cage and perches. Four times a year the cage gets shoved out on the back porch, cleaned with dish soap, hosed down and left in the sun to dry. If the stain does not come off the perches they get replaced or sanded and lemoned. I used to use newspaper at the bottom of the cage until Tommy started using it as a hiding place. Now I use white freezer paper with a little alfalfa hay. Poor lutino Sweetie soaked the ink off the newspaper. She was a real dirty bird.
