Exercise wheel material
What is the best material? Wood, Metal, Plastic? For the hamster it often does not matter much what material the exercise wheel is made of, he is happy that he can run! A nice side effect of a wooden running wheel is that the nails wear better than in a metal or plastic running wheel.
Cleaning wooden walking wheels
It was always a challenge to clean a wooden running wheel, but luckily that is a thing of the past. Nowadays there are two types of cleaning products with which wooden walking wheels can be easily cleaned. The first agent is CSI Urine Spray and the second is the Eco Pets Urine Buster. Both cleaning products work on an enzyme basis and tackle the bacteria in urine. These bacteria provide the well-known urine air. Both sprays remove the bacteria and dirt so that the running wheel is fresh and clean again.
Do not wash walking wheels with water
It is not good for all walking wheels to rinse them completely under the tap. It is very important that the rotating mechanism (ball bearing) does not get wet. The more often the turning mechanism is rinsed, the stiffer it becomes and can therefore squeak and run stiffer.
We do not recommend washing wooden walking wheels with water. Wiping with a damp cloth is no problem, but it is not good for the running wheels to wet them completely. Wetting the running wheel can cause the glue to come off.
Exercise wheel beeps
A running wheel can become more equal over time. We recommend a drop of olive oil for a squeaky running wheel. This can be attached to the turning mechanism.
