How to know if my...
How to know if my newly bought wooden, rattan or cardboard bird toys are free of mould? Some toys smells a bit mouldy or some other unfresh old weird d smell, but don't look very mouldy with lots of black stuff. I tried to spray it with vinegar but I still can't make sure it's completely freefrom mould. I don't feel very safe about letting my birds play these toys, as mouldy spores could be too tiny to be seen by naked eyes. What should I do with the toys?

Hello, thank you for using this service. I wish to introduce myself. I am Michael, a Research Librarian with 20+ years of experience.

Good evening,

With any doubts you have on the toys that I would return them to where you purchased them to get a refund. If though you want to try cleaning them before giving them to your bird that below are ways to clean them for being used in the future:
