Default Prevue F050 - cleaning a deep cage

I just got the Prevue F050. The back of the cage is next to impossible to reach and I am already wondering how I am going to clean it. I had to lean completely into the cage just to do the initial clean and it was very difficult. I was cleaning with the tips of my fingers.

I have a steamer but I need to spot clean in between my monthly steaming. Do you think a back washer or one of those dish scrub brushes would work for spot cleaning? Would those scrub brushes damage the powder coating? If worse comes to worse I may just have to step up my steam cleaning schedule to every 2 weeks. I definitely do not want to spray the cage with a high power water hose since it has exposed holes in the cage and don't want the frame work to rust from the inside out.

Congrats on your new cage

I would use a toothbrush for the tighter spaces, and a soft-bristled dish brush would work just fine for everything else, I think. Powder coating is pretty durable to that type of cleaning.

Best of luck

Your F050 is a bit larger than my F040's but my method will probably work well for you.

I use the side spring-load doors to reach the back and side portions of the cage.

I use a heavy duty handled stiff-bristle dish brush to scrub the tracks and crevices with White Vinegar on a daily basis.

I've had my cages for over 5 years now and have had no problem with the powder coating whatsoever.
