How to clean mite infested stuff??????
 
I have two hedgehogs and one of them has mites.luckily they've never been in contact due to them being opposite genders so my other hedgehog should be fine but I'm wondering how to clean stuff she has touched?

And she has these toy logs and shelter things that she hasn't used in weeks so should I worry about cleaning those or have the mites died off? And I have playpen that was hers but she also hasn't been in that for quite a while

Anything made of wood will need to be tossed in the garbage, that's the bad thing about using wood. Anything made of fabric can be washed in the washing machine with straight hot water then dried in the dryer. Anything that can't go in the washing machine can either go through a dishwasher or be washed in the tub with hot water and bleach. You will need to clean even the things she hasn't touched in a while just to be sure.

Her cage sits on top of a wooden cart thing? I guess I have to throw that out? And okay thanks on the other stuff. Do I need to be careful where I put her theN?

Is the wood on the cart sealed? If it is I would just clean it well with beach and water. I'm not sure what you mean about being careful where you put her.
