Toilet paper rolls aren't that abundant in my house, so I've been giving my gerbils different kinds of cardboard as much as I can.
I've been using cereal boxes, soda can boxes, small boxes from fiber bars, and so on. I rip off all of the parts that have glue on them, and I make sure that there's no food or anything on the boxes before I give it to them. It seems to be safe, but I just want to make sure?

Yeah, I've always given these things to my gerbils and never had any problems. As long as it's clean and not wax coated. Egg-box style recycled cardboard packaging is good too. Most cardboard packaging is fine, I give mine cereal boxes, tea-bag boxes, tissue boxes, etc, any food packaging outer box. Mine also have a bamboo tunnel chew thing from a petshop just in case of a cardboard shortage. And hay, they gnaw on hay to keep their teeth down too.
