I have a S/S cage through my AV. Been sitting awhile. Very sticky....have power washed.

I have a warm enough day to get it ready for Beau (since Tattoo is gone) today. Any quick help you can give me would be greatly appreciated. Like I said it's been power washed and I used scrubbing bubbles in it. Looks better but is still sticky.

IS BARTENDERS CREAM too rough on it?........thanks y'all

Do you know what has caused the stickiness? I've never used Bartenders Cream. I always reach for baking soda. It's cheap and seems to do the trick regardless of origin.

Try using dilute vinegar water (white vinegar preferred: one part vinegar to two parts water) which is safe and may dissolve whatever is causing the stickiness

GSE will do a good job and is safe to use.

Thank you Nancy, Susanne and Janet!!
Have used Dawn and soft brush, baking soda (I buy by the bagful) and soft cloth. The combo that works is Bartenders and mr. Clean original magic eraser.
Needless to say Beau is not in it yet.
Might be time to connect the hose to the water heater (yearly drain) see if the heat helps.

Like in the previous post vinegar is the best. Anyway cleanliness is a best for the welfare of your pet.
