Vinegar and water should work, and it's safe for the chins Smile Just make sure you rinse with water after cleaning with vinegar.

This project is going to be extremely difficult unless I am just over thinking it. The smell of Ferrets is just plastered all over the cage and inside of the hollow tubes where the bolts fasten in. I wish I could boil all of the cage sections in hot water or something but that doesn't seem like a possibility. I think we are going to have to power wash them with a good hose attachment to try and clean the inner hollow part of the cage frames where most of the smell is trapped. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated on where to go from here. Thanks.
