Ok I know I have been asking alot of questions but I want to make sure that I have as much as I can get correct well ..... correct.

I was looking through some of the thread of everybodies cages and I have noticed alot of baby toys.

My wife and I went to antique stores and good wills (I look for vintage stereos, fountain pens and other odds and ends) and found a little castle that would be great for the little ones.

What is the best way to clean these used toys so that they are clean for the ratties?

Dishwasher??

Dishwasher will do it! Be sure to get the cracks though if they are very dirty. You could do that with wipes. But yeah a dishwasher gets so hot it will kill anything.

a dishwasher works great if the toy is small enough to fit. if not then taking it to a do-it-yourself carwash and blasting the crud out of it for 5 mintues or so would work as well.

i LOVE the car wash. i use it for deep cleans of the cage too. i leave in everything that isn't fabric so it gets a good blasting at the same time. it used to take me HOURS to get a good deep clean done on my cage and in the end i would be stiff, bruised and sore and still not completely satisfied with the result but too exhausted to care anymore. but with the car wash i plunk in $3 and 5 mintues later its cleaner then when i first got the thing from the store. its WELL worth the $3 investment

Wow........... that sounds great but I would think the harsh soap would be dangerous for ratties! We are talking about a drive through car wash right? Not the ones where you park and use a hose?

It'd be awesome to see the looks on peoples faces when I walk back into a carwash and pull out a cage! LOL! :lol:

I know the ones around here you can just use a water spray

trust me, you'll get plenty of people giving you weird looks if you do it on a busy day. you may even get people pulling over to see what you're doing if you do it on a colder day. i had both experiences. but they are just curious and so far everyone has been very nice
