To clean, untwist the Foraging Ball and remove chain, bell and any uneaten contents. Wash the ball with hot, soapy water, or place in the dishwasher. Rinse thoroughly and allow to dry completely before returning to your bird's cage. Remember, variety is good, so change up the treats/shreddables you offer inside the ball frequently. It is a good idea to have two or more sets of toys so clean, dry ones can be quickly placed back in the cage while the other set dries. Discard any toy that does not come clean, is frayed, or is broken.
