Cleaning the bird cage is a daily task. Each day, remove food and water bowls. Empty the contents and soak the bowls in disinfectant for 15 to 30 minutes. After disinfecting, thoroughly wash the bowls with mild dish soap to remove any disinfectant residue that could cause illness in your bird. Allow the bowls to dry thoroughly before you refill them and replace them in the cage. While the bowls are drying, start cleaning the cage itself. Remove toys, perches and cage paper. Wipe all cage surfaces with a damp cloth to remove debris and dirt. Replace the cage paper and clean off the toys and perches with a damp towel before putting them back into the cage.
