General Care Cage Cleaning Wipes

After finally getting the linoleum I wanted in Lucy's viv, I couldn't figure out how I was going to clean up the poop. My first option was to use a vinegar/water solution in a spray bottle, but I didn't have a spray bottle. A spray bottle would probably terrify her and I wouldn't want her breathing in the vapor.

BEHOLD!!! DRAGON WIPES!

What You Need​

  • An old used baby wipe container or one you've taken the wipes out of
  • Half sheet paper towels or whole sheets cut in half
  • 1 part vinegar to 1 part water solution (I use about a cup of each which is usually too much)

What You Do​

  1. You'll want to start out with your half sheet paper towels and your baby wipe container. Size the paper towel up to see how wide your first fold will be.

  2. Fold it toward the back of the container and crease it.

  3. Take it out and re-crease it and straighten the fold out.

  4. Fold the leftover down again.

  5. This is what it should look like at this point.

  6. Slip the next sheet under the flap...

  7. ...and keep folding.

  8. You should be able to keep folding this way.

  9. When your pile gets big you should still have a flap!

  10. Just shove the pile into the container with the flap up.

  11. Dump in your water/vineger solution or any other cleaning solution you want to use.

  12. Smash down the wipes and squeeze any excess solution out.

  13. Find the flap that you had (It may be a little difficult).

  14. Pull it through the top...

  15. ...and TADA! Your very own, super safe, home made wipes! These can work for most any animal enclosure I usually have to rip mine because they come out in one continuous towel, but I also use cheap paper towels.
