yer, the best thing to do, is give it a real good scrub in hot water...

make sure you get in all the little corners, n just clean it as well as you can by hand...

then just leave it to stand in a bowl of boiling water for a little while...

it its goin in with a beardie, no doubt it will be dirty again within a week lol...

Try to avoid anything crumbly or porous. Give em a good scrub with a hosepipe in the garden - good fun. Don't use bleach cos it'll never come out.

Smile I get all my rocks from beech hun.

As said good scrub soak or boil it in a big pan if ya got one big enough thats what I have done with all mine no probs at all. Better than buying them from pet stores when you can pick em up for free

Either that or scrub and leave over night in a dish of bleachy hot water. Rinse and leave to dry before you put it in the viv.

yup agree with everyone we did the same for our beardie just give it a good dousing with reptile safe disinfectant. Rinse. Scrub. Douse. Rinse. Scrub and rinse again for good measure. We always do that with rocks we find outside and our beardie quite happily makes it all for nothing by pooping all over them
