Default How to clean properly

My hamster Icicle has gotten herself sticky with what I think is pee. I didn’t see her do it and she usually has a separate bathroom corner.

I want to clean her but I heard many times that water is bad for hamster skin. Should I maybe let her go in her sand area or will she take care of it herself?

Other than this she is very young and healthy, just a little dirty.

They normally groom & clean themselves without needing any help from us, a sand bath does help them to keep clean & they should have that in the cage at all times.
Never wash a hamster, if something really got stuck to the fur & hadn’t been cleaned of after a day or two then just gently cleaning with damp cotton wool is enough.

You’re right, she took care of it herself overnight and she’s perfectly clean today. I do see her going to the sand pretty often at night

Thank you!
