i've heard that baby wipes work well, and are safe for little ratties. what kind of cage bars do you have? they should be coated with something like pvc or crap i can't remember the word. it looks grainy like sand has been spray-painted on it. either way, plain metal bars will retain stains and odor and are generally impossible to clean. :p

Yes, if they are galvanized bars you will never get them totally clean. It absorbs the urine.

If they are coated.... I think the absolute best odor killer is a diluted bleach solution. Just make sure to rinse very well. I spray on with a spray bottle, then scrub down, then rinse.

You can also spray on 100% white vinegar. I alternate between vinegar and the dilute bleach, as the bleach can corrode even coated bars over a long time.

And a product called Nature's Miracle works well but its too expensive to use every week for cleaning.
