I have an outdoor guinea pig cage and their (TMI starts here..) poo gets stuck to the corners and edges after is melts or squishes or whatever.. My question is - How to get rid of it? Is scrubbing the only option? I have tried cage cleaner and then a strong shot of water from the hose, but it doesn't get it all off. Can anyone help? Is there some kind of powder or liquid that will get it off?

Take a high pressure water hose and spray it on the poo real close. That will get most of it off. Then you can scrub the rest off. At least you won't have to touch the poo. Try a good dish washing soap. Like Dawn or Palmolive. Make sure it has a bit of bleach in it. That's what we used to use at the animal shelter. Good luck.

your local petshop should sell cleaners with enzimes in them. if its not in the rodent isle, check the ferret isle.. even the bird isle. more or less the cleaners are the same and they may need a few applications but that is what worked best with my *no longer owned* guinea and my cockatiel *curently owned* just be sure to read the directions and use as it says. bonus is that most enzime cleaners are really really good for the environment. pair that with whats comming off and you shall have a good crop of tomatos this year :P
