So I first separate the playpen from the kennel, and put Munchkin in the playpen because I clean out the kennel first.
Here is what the kennel looks like before I clean it:
The first thing I do is to take everything out of the cage:
Next I take out the plastic pan and dump out all of the loose hay and pieces of litter in it.
Then I vacuum any leftover pieces off the pan:
After that I spray the pan with a mixture of equal parts water and vinegar:
Next I rinse it off with very hot water making sure that I get all of the vinegar off.
Then I dry it off thoroughly.
Now I clean his litter box
First I dump all of the contents out:
Then I rinse it out with hot water,
Spray it with the vinegar and water,
Fill it up with hot water and let it soak,
While I let the litter box soak, I get all of Munchkin's dishes and plastic toys ready to be washed:
I fill up a bucket with hot, soapy water
And wash the dishes
Then I rinse them off very thoroughly,
And dry them.
Then I take his litter box and thoroughly rinse out all of the vinegar. (if your rabbit is still learning how to use a litter box, do not deodorize the litter box. So only use water in that case, and no vinegar.) And then I dry the litter box completely.
Then I go to his kennel and remove that towel that I keep under the plastic pan:
Then I sweep up all of the big pieces of hay (they clog the vacuum), and then vacuum the rest:
Next I take his towels and shake them out outside (if they are very dirty I wash them and get out new towels)
Now I fill up his hay, food, water, and litter box and put everything back in the kennel:
sorry, the video is sideways. I was using my ipod and I guess I was holding it sideways and I didn't realize.
And, this is only part 1. Part 2- the playpen and Part 3- cleaning up the huge mess I make outside of his cage in the process are coming soon!!!
Note: As it was said in the comments, the sink I use is NOT the kitchen sink. I definitely would not recommend washing pet litter boxes in kitchen sinks. (eww)
