Cleaning: Dirty bird feeders spread disease. We recommend cleaning your feeders weekly, or monthly at a minimum. Clean your feeders outdoors with a large bucket, and always wear gloves when cleaning. Soak your feeder in a 9:1 solution of water and bleach for 15 minutes. Then use a bird feeder brush to scrub the feeder with dish soap and water. Refill when completely dry.
After I ordered this, I noticed that the cost of shipping was nearly as much as the brush itself! Once I received it, I was disappointed by the size of the brush head. It had about a 2-3" diameter. The bird feeder has a 5" diameter. I would have returned it, but that would have cost even more. Disappointed.
Hi Dennis, Thank you for your review of the Droll Yankees Bird Feeder Brush. We are sorry this product was not what you expected. The brush is a great tool to use on any tube feeder. The diameter of the brush is sized to fit and move around the inside of a tube so you can get all sides cleaned easily. We hope that it proves helpful in the cleaning process. Yes, for us to pay for returns, there needs to be a fault on our part, like a damaged/defective item sent or a wrong item sent. Since that is not the case with this situation, you would need to pay to ship the item back and then we could refund you for the item once received. If you have any other questions, comments or concerns, please do not hesitate to reach out to our Customer Service Team at 1-800-352-9164. Thank you.
I have yet to receive my complete order. It was due to arrive Dec 7th and it cannot be tracked. Therefore I cannot review the product. I tried to call Customer Service only to be constantly disconnected. I will not be a repeat customer.
