It can be used on any surface you want to keep clean, such as cages, toys, food cups, floors - anything you want to have a protective, easy to clean surface to work with. The finish is slick without being greasy or oily so it does not attract grime. Over time, your pet's environment stays healthier longer when using Cage & Toy Shield because cleanings are deeper even though they take less time.
Many birds are notoriously messy eaters, and let's face it, "doing one's business" while flying around doesn't exactly confine the release of waste to a specific area you can easily clean up. Often a small animal like a ferret, guinea pig, rat, or sugar glider can be a very messy eater, and the climbers tend to spread their waste all over the cage. Does your pet run in a wheel with a wire floor? Sure, the wire lets waste flow out of the wheel but the spinning wheel can sling a lot of that same waste around the cage.
Kaytee made a cage shield product many of our bird and small animal customers used to make cage wiping easier (though it had limited odor control properties). But they discontinued this product in 2008. And that's when we developed our Cage & Toy Shield, adding the pet smell control while we were at it. Personally, we use it on our dog bowls and toys. Grime and food film is super easy to wipe off if you spray a little Cage & Toy Shield on the bowls or toys after you wash them.
Cage & Toy Shield stops pet waste and food residue from binding itself to cages, toys, food cups and bowls, even the walls just outside your bird cage. For a complete clean with odor protection, we recommend using this product as a followup after using Really Natural's Cage & Toy Wash.

This product should only be used on a clean surface. So if your pet's habitat / toys / food cups, etc. have missed some cleanings, be sure to clean them well first (we recommend Cage & Toy Wash). Once surfaces are clean, shake the Cage & Toy Shield bottle well & spray over all target surfaces you wish to protect. When spraying areas on the cage where your pets create heavy soiling (for example, near food cups) you may want to spray the bars all the way to the bottom of cage since soil will tend to slide down the cage bars and stick to unprotected areas underneath the target area.
The 8 oz bottle lasts 5 to 7 cleanings, depending on how wet the soiled surfaces get and size of the cleaning area. You can tell when it's time to re-apply because surfaces will become noticeably more difficult to wipe grime from. Once you start using this product, you will be amazed at how quick and easy your cleanings will be! In general, this cleaning process should not take more than a couple of minutes.
Cage & Toy Shield also provides an anti-corrosive barrier, so using it regularly means less concern about the cage finishes breaking down over time. This product should be stored where the temperature does not exceed 80 degrees Fahrenheit for long periods of time.
