Just hot water, if I need to scrub the cage, I use an sos pad, then rinse with plenty of water and dry completely..........never use anything harsh in a bird cage...........if you get a used bird cage from someone or your bird died in a cage and you suspect a disease, wash it down with bleach water but never use that while the bird is occupying a cage..........frankly, if a diseased bird died, I'd get a new cage.

White vinegar mostly. I mist the cages down everyday when I clean the trays out, then I wipe off the loosened poop and debris. I rarely need a deep cleaning but I do have "poop off." I think I have had the bottle for over a year and I have 5 birds. Guess I don't use it much.
For toys, etc... I run the foot toys through the dishwasher about once a week.

we dump it all out, hot water and dish soap  and simple green.

then we line it with paper and recycled bedding (care fresh)
