    I usually use F10 (I think that is the right name) but have run out. Until I order some more I wondered if there are any natural products I could use for every day wiping down that is parrot safe and eliminates the germs etc. I have a steam cleaner for "big" cleans but it is not suitable for every day use due to its size. I use vinegar round the house but don't about the birds. I bought some cleaner temporarily from the pet shop but it has turned perches pink and my wall pink when I managed to squirt it on the paint so how good is that for the birds??!! Any ideas folks? 
    Birds are like chocolates you cann't stop at just one!
