I used to use this stuff to clean hedgehogs out with. They have a huge range, for pets and for homes. Do you think it's parrot safe?

i wouldn't think it is, i can't see the ingredients but most pet safe things still aren't bird safe because of their very sensitive lungs

I'm fairly certain the active ingredient is essential citrus oil. Now I know grapefruit seed extract is safe and I think this stuff is something like that. I googled to see if people are use it for birds and quite a few are. I was mostly thinking for using it in and around the house rather than for the bird stuff specifically. I will look in to it more!

I suspect it's orange oil based. Have used orange oil to clean, you do get orange oil cage cleaners. Poop off use the fact they have no orange oil as a marketing tool. I have stopped using orange oil, mainly having heard/warnings of what it does to a polished surface.

It may well be the minor/carrier ingredients are of a more concern.
