Use a child's swimming pool to soak grates for bird cages. Place the grates into a child's swimming pool to let them soak for 5 or 10 minutes. It makes them so much easier to get the mess off when you are cleaning bird cages. No scrubbing required!

Always line the cage tray with newspaper, folded to fit. All you have to do then is pull the tray part way out and remove the soiled paper. Replace with clean paper. The job is half done. This can be done as many times a day as needed.
Once a week (at least) put your birds in a smaller cage or on their play stand and place the larger one in your bathtub. Turn on the shower and go to town. I have a scrub brush used only for the birds' cages. I also use Clorox Clean-Up to cleanse and get rid of bacteria.

For those who have birds, a nontoxic way to clean is hydrogen peroxide at full strength. It works great!
