Use vinegar that you would eat, not cleaning vinegar, diluted in hot water.

I like to use a microfibre cloth (rags will work better that a sponge too).

I don´t know about the dishsoap if it is lime.

Apple cider vinegar probably isn't acidic enough. Use white distilled vinegar.

To be honest, my preference for cage cleaning is F10. It's a proper veterinary disinfectant and works.

alright i'll try that. but the vinegar says for cleaning, canning and cooking so i'm pretty sure that it would work for cleaning, I hope so.

The cleaning vinegar has a much higher percentage of acediacidic acid but it may be too strong for a bird cage. Use diluted normal white vinegar.
