Default C&C Questions

So Im in the process of building a 2x3 C&C cage and so far its going good. (And holy cow Ive used a lot of zip ties!). Are you supposed to attach the coroplast to the bottom and sides with zip ties? And what is the best way to clean it if they are attached? Wipe it down with soapy water? Spray bottle with vinegar solution? Is the vinegar smell hard on hedgies?

You don't have to attach the coroplast, and it's easier to dismantle the cage for transportation or if you want to take the coroplast out for cleaning if you don't. I usually left my coroplast in the cage though, it was easier. I sprayed it a 50/50 water/vinegar solution and wiped it down, then followed with a diluted chlorhexidine solution, which smells kind of nice and is a good disinfectant. The chlorhexidine isn't necessary though, I just had a bottle I bought from Lily's breeder, so I liked to use it. Most people on here just use vinegar solution. And it doesn't leave much of a smell, so if you leave it for a minute or two after wiping it all down, it should be fine.
