This is one of my favorite tricks for thorough cleaning! It requires no soaps or cleaning products whatsoever, which is the awesome part.
Since I have a lot of birds in large aviaries, I have a lot of perches to clean. It's incredibly time consuming to soak perches in hot water and scrub them (which is what I've done in the past.)
Now I've simplified this otherwise annoying chore.
- Gather perches.
- Place in dishwasher.
- Start dishwasher on the longest, hottest, steamiest cycle possible.
That's it. Enjoy your clean perches!
