    My chicks are in the brooder, I use paper towels, there is some poop stuck on the plastic brooder, is it ok to clean this with a wet paper towel and some bleach, or Joy or something? Or is that too agressive, will the fumes damage my chicks? Thanks.
    They are usually in the opposite area of the brooder when I replace the towels. (I have the largest rubbermaid tote)

    I am also using a rubbermaid tote. When I clean mine daily I have been wiping the walls down with clorox cleanup wipes. It seems to dry quickly because of the warm environment.
