To clean your pet's home, simply unsnap Tank Topper from tank by unhooking the two Spring Latches. Empty and wash the tank, wipe dry, refill with fresh bedding material and replace the Tank Topper onto the tank.
To maintain a healthy environment for both you and your pet, the entire cage and accessories should be thoroughly cleaned and the bedding changed once per week. Cage and cage accessories can be washed with warm water and a mild soap. Thoroughly rinse each washed item, however, to ensure all soap residue is removed. Then let the product air dry before returning it to your pet's environment.
While cleaning your pet's cage and cage accessories, provide a safe, comfortable location in which your pet can exercise, explore, and play. To safely confine your pet, while also allowing her to get the essential exercise she needs, we recommend an Exercise Pen for Small Animals.
