My little trio I'm raising are in desperate need of a bath. No matter how well I think I get formula off, I miss some and parts of their fur is stiff with the dry formula. They also have some poo smears from being in a feeder bin I couldn't get off with a wet q-tip. I will be waiting until their eyes are open but they are really going to need a bath. Is regular dawn dish soap safe to use on them? Advice would be appreciated as I just can't get it off with wet wipes or q-tips.

I used to use a tiny drop of baby shampoo on mine. I wouldn't like to wash in dish soap as I find it drying. You may find that just warm water will clean well enough, and soap won't be necessary.

I have a baby so I have baby shampoo. I'll have to dig through and see if I have unscented, though.

Water isn't getting it off which is why they need a full-on bath. Some of the feces is just so smeared in. ): it's hard not to do it now but they are still just a little too susceptible to a chill right now especially the youngest who has the most fecal matter on him.

Baby shampoo is the way to go.
