Are clorox (unscented) wipes safe to use in their cage to disinfect their toys and perches? I don't want to make them sick or anything sick

Hmm I would think not. It still has chemicals even though it says unscented. You can always use a mixture of 1/2 water to 1/2 vinegar. Or baking soda and water.

I dont use cleaners at all in my birds' cages I just use hot water and a scrubbie.

You could use vinegar though, it works well.

I use vinegar and water. Clorox is way too strong and undoubtedly toxic, even unscented.
I know some people do use baby wipes smile

You clean up their poo when they are out flying? Seriously, I just wait for it to dry and fall to the floor. (I vacuum every night).

BTW I wouldn't use bleach scented or not. You can use a small amount in a sink of water to disinfect if you rinse well though personally I wouldn't even do that. For sure I would not use the wipes directly on the perches.

I agree, and I think if you were to use Clorox on the wooden perches, it would absorb into them, which is not a good thing. Scented or unscented, they're still made of the same chemical, bleach. If you're looking for a good everyday cleaner, the two best are Grape Seed Extract and Apple Cider Vinegar. Don't use the White Vinegar, it's fermented from ethanol, which isn't safe for keets, so make sure it's Apple Cider Vinegar. Both GSE and ACV are all natural and totally safe and they work great. I use GSE everyday and couldn't be happier smile
