Question Best way to do this...?

It's that time of the week... cage cleaning time!
This will be the first time I've ever had to do this with Minnie (I got her a week ago), and here's my plan of action-
Stage 1- Take Minnie and her cage upstairs.
Stage 2- Put the cage in the bath and open the door/take the entire wire part off. Put a bit of old bedding in the bath alongside her favourite cage accessory. Hopefully Minnie will climb out to explore.
Stage 3- Get mum to watch her (armed with a pair of gardening gloves and a carry box just in case!) while I quickly clean the base and put in fresh bedding.
Stage 4. Put cage back in bath with door open and encourage Minnie in with a treat or something. If this doesn't work, I'll remove the wire top and hope she doesn't try to escape while i'm putting it back on.

Does this sound like a good plan? What can I do to make this less stressful for her? Is there anything I should change about the plan/anything I can make simpler?
