    Cleaning My Hamsters Cage | Burrow's Cage Setup

    Hello Everyone! I wanted to share how I clean and set up my Chinese Hamsters cage!



    Video on YouTube!

    I do a full cage clean about once a month, and spot clean weekly or more depending on the need.

    Cages should be cleaned weekly not monthly!

    I spot clean my cages like most people do these days. there is no need to waste bedding that is not dirty it wastes money and it stresses out the hamsters to lose everything that smells like them and lose all of their food stashes.

    Hamsters have less urine than other rodents like say, mice, so if you spotclean daily, some people say it's fine to just clean every month. That being said, there's little ammonia buildup, the bedding is kept clean, and the hamsters aren't stressed. I have mice though, so I'm stuck cleaning weekly - they are so messy. And I spotclean.

    That cage setup is lovely. What types of bins do you use?

    I Just found the largest bin I could find/afford at the time and added bins over time Im not sure what the brand is exactly.
