I use the cornstarch intended for cooking purposes, too.

Mix white vinegar and water 50/50.
Add cornstarch to make a paste.
Apply to coat allow to dry.
Brush off. And old toothbrush works well for brushing.

will it be bad for my buns' health if they are cleaning themselves and i haven't taken off all of the cornstarch in their fur?

also, will their smell be gone if I dry bath them with cornstarch? Iclean their cage every 2 days, but I still don't like it that theydon't smell good... I know it's impossible for them to naturally get afragant smell... but I want, at least, for them to be no smelly.
