Cleaning up Rabbit Poop
Rabbit poop is one of the easier types of fecal matter to clean up when it comes to pets. Due to the consistency and the size of the poops, it rarely stains unless you step in it or it gets ground into the carpet or other surface.
What you will need:
- Plastic spray bottle
- Vinegar solution – 1 part warm water to 1 part vinegar
- Rubber gloves
- Any of the solid poop that is still there needs to be disposed of, either by sweeping it up (pellets) or using a plastic bag as a glove and picking it up (similar to how you’d clean up dog poop). Dispose of the poop appropriately.
- Check to make sure that the area you are cleaning will not get discolored due to the vinegar solution by doing a spot test in an inconspicuous area. Saturate the area with vinegar and wait a few minutes. If nothing really happens to the color or material, then go ahead with the cleaning process.
- If there is no stain, take the vinegar solution and spray around the area. There’s no need to saturate it at this point; you’re merely disinfecting and deodorizing the affected area.
- Spray the vinegar solution onto the stain, saturating the area with the solution. Allow it to sit for several minutes.
- Take the cloth and blot the area gently. Don’t rub – this can cause the stain to become more deeply set and can make it more difficult to remove.
- Repeat the process until the stain appears to be gone. Allow the area to air dry, and you’re done.
Cleaning up rabbit poop is just as simple as going through any other sort of carpet or floor cleaning procedure; even more so because it is rare that rabbit poop even stains due to its consistency.
