Cage Cleaning: UrineOff(tm)

Has anyone used this?  I was looking for some help because Gir started spraying  :-\ (I know why its happening and we're doing our best to aleviate the problem but I'd like to get rid of the smell too) but I think it would be great on cages.  If nobody else has I'll gladly let you guys know how it turns out but it would be interesting to know if anyone has tried it and what the results were?

I'm thinking that it wouldn't do any better then good old soap and water. I don't see how the pee can soak into the wire. Your probably better off saving your money. If you already have it though and are going to try, just be sure to rinse rinse rinse that cage really good!!! Oh and let us know how it works.

I have 2.5hp gas pressure washer I use to clean my cages and I currently am using Nolvasan Solution to disinfect (it goes right through the pressue washer). It isn't cheap up it kills viruses and such and I got a whole Gallon for FREE!!!!

I've got plastic shelves in my cage, so it may not do much for the wire but I hope will get the shelves clean(er).  In any case as long as it works on kitty urine it wouldn't be a total loss :) 
I also can't really use a pressure washer because I live in an appartment complex and don't have any outside/yard space to really go at it otherwise I'd get one in a heartbeat.

I tend to agree with AR... but I had to add that now I am singing the old Easy Off jingle...

I use vinegar and hydrogen peroxide for all my animals and find it works great for me.  It's also inexpensive and I can just run to the store if I need more.
