Instead of wasting money on expensive reptile cleaners, just use
distilled VINEGAR, sold in supermarkets. It has a bacteria/germ kill ratio of over 95%; Bleach & others less than 75%. Just spritz a small amount inside empty cage or decorations (cork bark,
rocks, etc.), let it stand for a few minutes, then wipe the area down, rinse and that's all. Give the tank a fast wipe with paper towels; anything else can be put back wet.
I add a few tablespoons of full strength lemon juice to my mix along with a few drops of "natural dish liquid" sold in health stores. Absolutely safe for all your herps.
P.S. Buy the brand name Vinegar instead of generic. Some generics may use wood chip solvents.
