I love keeping water out for my birds for bathing and drinking. But boy can these receptacles get slimy! Ewww.
I’ve found a way to slow algae growth – put a couple of pennies in your clean birdbath or water dish. This has saved me so much time since the water stays cleaner for weeks instead of days. Give it a try!
Need a quick clean up method too? Empty your water receptacle out, sprinkle baking soda in it and let it soak a few minutes. Then use a stiff scrub brush or tin foil to scrub it clean. There – I saved you lots of time. So go ahead and put out some more water for your birds. 🙂
