Cleaning your rabbit's cage

To reduce allergens from floating around your home and the environment, make sure to clean your rabbit's cage every day with a damp cloth (disposable cage wipes are also available at pet stores). This will help to remove the dander, dead hair, urine and droppings on the cage. If you have chosen to line the bottom of the cage with paper, make sure to change it every day, and once a week all of the accessories within the cage should be cleaned and washed with warm soapy water, rinsed well, and dried completely to avoid mold from developing. After you have finished cleaning the cage, vacuum the whole area around the cage to pick up the debris left on the ground.

It will be necessary to do an even more extensive cleaning of the rabbit cage once a month that includes scrubbing everything in hot soapy water as well as disinfecting with bleach. Make sure to rinse the cage off really well and to let it dry out completely. This job should be done by someone that does not suffer from allergies, but if this is not possible, make sure to always wear gloves and a protective mask.
