How to control urine odor in mice cage?

New mice owners often underestimate the amount of work you actually need to put to maintain a mice cage. Mice produce lots of urine and feces the primary cause of smells from mice waste and rapidly make a habitat odorous.

The best cage for mice should not have a particularly strong smell. Having a clean cage means your mice will be healthier and happier. if their cages are filthy, they can be stress and even develop nasty illnesses. If the smell is getting unpleasant, it’s time to try some method below.

#1 Remove soiled bedding regularly

I would like to recommend remove soiled bedding once or twice a day if necessary, this will allow your pet to sleep and urinate in a clean place.

The mice tent to use one place in their cage as the toilet, this will make your task of cleaning straightforward. If not, just remove any bedding that has become damp with urine by plastic tongs or a scoop.

#2 Using baby wipes to clean the cage

Non scented baby wipes will be the good ideal to wipe the cage. Whether you use glass, wire or plastic cage, they can be easier to wiped down and keeping it clean. Not only the cage, the baby wipes also work well to wipe the plastic accessories in the mice cage, and reduce the smell that can linger on them. Not to mention they’re great for cleaning the exercise wheels.

#3 Pet Sprays

There are always the corners, small cracks, or any harder sports in the cage that wipes can’t reach well, it is where the pet spray come to handle. However, I would like to recommend you to rinse your cage and the items with warm water after you spray them, even if it says their safe for your pets, you always want to make sure that there is no risk.

#4 Provide a mice litter tray

You should spend your time to observe your mice to know where them usually go for toilet. Placing the litter tray in this corner and add some heavily soiled bedding over a substrate of a different texture. There is the change that your mice will use the litter tray you give them as long as it easy for them to access.

Clean the tray daily, replacing only some of the soiled litter each time. Leaving a bit in the tray reminds the mice of where they do their business after you’ve cleaned it.
