“I change the litter in my hamster’s cage every single day. So why does it always reek of urine?”
Isn’t it funny how such a cute and cuddly animal can produce such a big, bad smell? Wince no more. This cage cleaning technique will stop your pet’s cage from smelling like urine once and for all. (Excrement, too). Best of all, it only takes 10 minutes and is safe for you and your small animal – whether it’s a mouse, hamster, ferret, snake…
Why does my hamster’s cage always smell like urine?
It might not be the litter that’s causing your hamster cage to stink of pee. It might be the cage itself. Most hamster and rodent cages are made of metal or plastic – two materials that tend to absorb odors. Even if you diligently change your pet’s litter every day, if the urine has managed to seep through, it may have already penetrated into the cage.
In other words, you can change your hamster’s litter all you want, but you’ll never fully eliminate that animal pee smell until you thoroughly clean and neutralize the urine on the cage itself.
Here’s how you can do just that in only 10 minutes. No need to replace the cage. It’ll be smelling fresh as a daisy in no time.
How to eliminate pee smell in animal cages
Step 1: Remove all contents of the cage.
Step 2: Clean and neutralize the urine on the cage. Normally, this is a two-step process, but we prefer to save time by using the 2-in-1 Purodora Small Animal Cage Odor Neutralizer. Here’s why:
- It cleans AND neutralizes urine and excrement odors in one step.
- It works quickly and is safe for all caged pets.
- It works on all animal urine smells.
Simply spray Purodora Small Animal Cage Odor Neutralizer over the sides and bottom of the cage/pan and let the product work for 10 minutes.
Step 3: Rinse the cage/pan with clean water and dry with a clean cloth.
You’re now ready to add fresh new litter and put everything back!
