There has been a few people saying to use "SAND" to bath a robo or other small animal. Sand is NO longer used and only a few manufactures are making it. If you can find it grab it, but the "Bathing Powder" and the "Small Animal Dust" is all that is now available because they are finding it is safe. Most of the dust are no longer "dusty" and can be used safely. I used sand but when I could find it no longer I started to use the "Small Animal Bathing Powder. I found this to clean better. I leave mine in all the time, changing it weekly when I do a complete tank change. I like to leave it for them so they can bath when they want to. Usually after they do their morning "business", they climb in the bath shake the dust all over themselves (almost like they are taking a shower) then start their nightly routine. When I am up I see them run in do another shake with it and then go to sleep. LIke us they want to bath shower as we do...when we need it usually twice a day.

This product is not good for your dwarf hamster. The powder is too fine and can cause respiratory problems. Kiln dried sand is safe to use or chinchilla sand. Also dont use pine or cedar shavings for their bedding. These can be toxic to your hamster. Also, make sure in the summer months that you keep your hamster cool. They can die from heatstroke very easily.....

Absolutely! That is the exact reason why I bought this stuff. This product is for smaller creatures, and from personal experience this dust has been great for my hamsters (two robos, one dwarf) =]

Yes you can.
Some hamsters will even roll around in the dust just like a chinchilla would. If not, you can just put some on his back and rub it in a bit.
Just remember not to dust your hamster too much as it could cause dry skin.
