Disinfecting a Hamster Cage?Our hamster got sick and died a couple nights ago. I need to know a safe way to clean and disinfect the cage so the next one we get does not "catch" whatever Princess had. We had 2 cages for her to go back and forth in, and the 1 is all plastic. I do not want to use bleach as it may seep into the plastic and make the next one sick. Any ideas on how I can clean and disinfect this? Thanks in advance for any and all suggestions.
