Bunnies with white fur often start to look a little yellow around their hind legs. This is due to urine and feces residue, especially if your pet recently went through an ill period which caused more soiling. Cleaning white bunny fur requires gentleness and caution because bunny skin is rather thin. With the right shampoo and bathing methods, you clean the rabbit’s white fur and prevent your pet from going into shock.

Buy baby cornstarch powder. Check the product's label to rule out the ingredient of talc, a respiratory irritant that you do not want to use to bathe your rabbit.


Place your white bunny in a comfortable position on a towel with the soiled parts exposed.


Apply the cornstarch powder to any soiled areas, gently working the powder into the fur. Apply extra cornstarch if the bunny has clumps of soil in its fur.


Discard the soiled parts into a trash bag or onto a newspaper.


Use a brush with a soft tip to loosen any remaining debris in the bunny's white fur. Pat the powdered areas to remove the loose powder.


Wet Bath Fill a small sink with about 2 1/2 inches of lukewarm water. Mix in 1 tbsp. of hypoallergenic, non-medicated pet shampoo.


Place your bunny in the sink, lowering him in by the rear into the lukewarm water. Work the water and shampoo solution into the bunny's fur.


Rinse with lukewarm, clear water using a cup and being very gentle. Leave no shampoo residue in the bunny's fur.


Wrap bunny in a towel and dry carefully but do not rub against the irritated skin.


Blow-dry the fur on low with the brunt of the air shooting away from the bunny. Keep your hand near the bunny's skin to determine the heat of the airflow.
