When setting up a neutral cage to put two gliders together, would it be best to purchase a new cage set up they both never been in or can you use both the set ups your currently are using and wash them throughly in the washing machine and rinsed in vinegar to remove and scent of both glides so you can add it to one cage for both of them ?

we cleaned up one cage. all the bars, door, floors, etc. also the toys.
we washed the cage fleece sets in the wash. My wife makes up a (i think) water/vinegar mix she got off a website, uses that to clean cage and toys.

this has worked on the 4 introductions we have done.

You don't have to purchase a new set. Just a thorough wash should be fine. You can also use a 50/50 vinegar and water mix, but I don't think it's needed.
Good luck:)

Thats what we have done for our new introductions. The first time before I was educated in the cage settings for after new intros I put the favorite toys from the smaller cage into the larger one then multiple pouches and basically mixed all the toys and its the one introduction where there arent random fights. This last introduction I put them into a nuetral cage and they seemed to intent on marking it and deciding whose cage it was. It was strange, as if one scent had to claim it more than the other.
