Question Cornstarch

Ok, I hate to ask this
But what is the best way to clean a bunny's dirty bottom.
I change his litter box twice daily.

I was just reading an article that suggested using cornstarch - to rub it in until it balls up and the poop slides off the fur --
Would cornstarch be safe to use???

I've been cutting some of the messy fur and wetting the fur just alittle- but bunny doesn't like that.
Anyone have other suggestions?

Sometimes our older bun Oreo gets a little bit of a messy butt, and we just sit him in an inch or 2 or warm water, and scrub him with some small animal shampoo. It smells like strawberries!

"For the animal shall not be measured by man. In a world older than ours they move finished and complete, gifted with extensions of the senses we have lost or never attained, living by voices we shall never hear.They are not brethen, they are not underlings; they are other nations caught with ourselves in the net of life and time, fellow prisoners of the splendor and travail of the earth."
