    Unless you have had some particular disease problem, there is just no actual practical reason that I can see to use anything other than water and a bit of elbow grease. Perhaps a small squirt of detergent to help you get really stubborn squirty poo stains off walls.

    (e.t.a. -- feeders and waterers benefit from sitting all day in the sun with the tops off after cleaning, if you can. But that is optional)

    Good luck, have fun,

    Pat
