We use a bleach mixture 20% bleach to 1 Gallon of water on all cages,
bedding, cement floors and walls. This cannot, of course, be used on
carpet as it will ruin the color. We use a product called TekTrol
spray for the ADV cages in the other shelter and use a product called
A-33 Dry which comes in pre-measured packets (1 per Gallon) for for
washing all surfaces down in our ADV shelter. This product is a 1-
step disinfectant, cleaner, fungicide, mildewstat, viucide, odor
counteractant that kills it all. We order from Revival 1-800-786-
4751 as they have very good prices and great service.
