Every few weeks Stuart's terrarium needs cleaning. Since Stui's home is so large I do not have to clean often but when I do it is quite the job.

Here is how it is done:
1. remove mouse and put in safe area
2. remove all accessories and clean them
3. remove bedding
4. wash terrarium with soapy water and dry with paper towel
5. spray terrarium and accessories with lice/mite spray (I use diluted topical bovine Ivomec), dry with paper towel, do NOT spray feed and water containers
6. polish glass with vinegar
7. add bedding, I use Swheat Scoop Natural Wheat Litter (for cats) and Aspen Snake Bedding in this video, can also use rabbit food, pine pellets, Aspen shavings, corn cob bedding and paper based bedding (do NOT use pine or cedar shavings: they cause respiratory problems), I also like to add natural stuff like driftwood, rotten logs, hay, straw, dried leaves and moss but these I freeze for two days in the freezer before I give it to him, freezing kills any harmful creepy crawlies that may come with it.
8. add accessories, add nesting material in nest box (I use paper based bedding and hamster fluff, I also use fleece cloth and paper tissue sometimes, hamster fluff is good in winter as it is the warmest)
9. add mouse, although in this video I allowed Stu to be part of the process, if you do, be extra careful so you do not hurt the little guy accidentally

NOTE: everytime I try to make his terrarium a little different so it is more exciting and fun for him to get a new, clean cage. Stuart just loves his home :):):)
