(I know i lacked common sense with this action)
I scrubbed my cavy bud's cage last night with lysol hydrogen peroxide multi purpose cleaner, after i wiped it with wet paper towel an then dry paper towel very well & until dry. My guinea pig sneezed once, i didnt think anything of it at first but now that im at work im thinking about it. What should i do? Will my Guinea pig be okay? Any thoughts?

He's fine. It's just a very expensive way to clean the cage. But I'd wipe it down with clear water to get rid of any remaining residue.

The stuff you used no doubt cleaned it just fine. Just wipe it down to get rid of the residue.

In the future, you can just use diluted white vinegar to clean.

I always use vinegar and water, unless I come across a particularly nasty stain. Then I call in the big guns in a small amount.

The great thing about vinegar is that it will cut through dried-on urine. It also has it's own antibacterial properties. The easiest thing is to get a spray bottle and mix vinegar and water. Super easy to use at cleaning time then. Do wipe it down with clear water afterwards and there is usually no lingering smell.
