Unscented baby wipes. I buy the big box from costco that has a lot of smaller ones inside of it that totals I think 2200 wipes? It's about $19 last time I looked (which was a long time ago..they last a good while). I try to wipe down the cages every other day. Takes a few seconds, a minute or three at most. Really keeps the smell down from ratties peeing on the bars, and it's so easy to do, you can just keep the wipes near the cage and just do a spot-clean on the bars and levels with a wipe or two when you let the rats out/before you put them back in and then toss them in the trash and you're done.

When I do a deep clean (about 1x a month or so) I take the whole cage outside, rinse it off with the hose, douse and lightly scrub with some diluted bleach, rinse really well and then dry it out.
