    Default What cleaning products to use on shed lino??

    Just about to place my adsa order and then I had a thought.....I have been using the Bob Martins hutch cleaner/disinfectant for Poppy in her hutch. What should I use if I want to mop the lino in her shed? Do I still use that?

    Can I use normal floor cleaner? She's a really clean bunny but I will still want to give it a good mop/clean as well as doing her litter tray regularly. So far I have only swept her shed out and changed her litter tray....

    Would appreciate any advice please

    I use water out of the kettle with some vinegar in it. I'm going to try one drop of lemon oil in it next time too.

    My hutches are lined with lino and i use bob martins spray or similar.

    Maybe spray it on the floor and mop it?

    I wouldn't know what to use on a large scale.

    Im tempted to say something like savlon but im not sure

    I just get on my hands and knees and give it a good wash with a hot soapy (fairy liquid) cloth

    I use hot water and vinegar for my shed floor. As soon as it's dry you can't smell it.

    Trigene is a good safe product you can make up and use as a floor cleaner. You can buy it online as a concentrate and make it up as you need it. It has a good shelf life.

    ^ this I think Schuette is meaning white vinegar, it's a really good natural disenfectant, I'm not sure malt vinegar would work aswell so thought I'd mention it. Bicarb of soda mixed with vinegar is a really powerful natural cleaner.

    Yeah we always get white vinegar purely because someone mentioned malt stained their carpet and I do sometimes use it on carpet, although it's mainly used on the Lino.

    Just be careful on your ratio's and never ever add bleach it causes really harmful fumes (to humans aswell) if mixed with bicarb, you probably want about 100ml of white vinegar, teaspoon of bicarb and then 200ml of water, the lemon juice is a good idea aswell as it will smell fresh and repel flies
