Removing Gerbil Pee on Wood

How do I get gerbil pee off of wood? He has a wooden ramp and the second story is also wood. He pees all over them. I tried to have him use a potty, but all he does is chew them. I need help please!

Unfortunately, it isn't a matter of getting it "off" the wood. Untreated wood absorbs liquid, so it is embedded in the wood.

It is best to use plastic ramps for gerbils.

Unfortunately--Fortunately's right about the wood.

Having gerbils, though--we found that both wood and plastic were a no-go. Even though we only have two males, they made mincemeat from both wood and plastic ramps ( and plastic tunnels and feeding dishes).

We found small glass shelves ( saved from an old medicine cabinet, about 2 1/2" wide by 10" long) that we're using as ramps; something similar, or metal with rounded edges may be a better fix if you have to replace the ramps.
