What kind of disinfectant do you use to clean your vivs? I was going to put some diluted milton into a sprayer and use that but it smells quite strong, will it be ok to put sid back in there afterwards? Thanks..

for a general clean I use soapy water (fairy - is kinder to your hands -lol) For a thourough clean I use milton and then leave the viv to air until the smell has gone. You can also buy some pet friendly cleaners.

Hi,

I spray everything, (viv, dishes, my hands etc :)) with a pet shop disinfectant, either beaphar BeaClean or Johnson's Clean'n'Safe, £2.99 each.

Thats a very funny picture of your corn, the 3rd one with a big head:)

How long approximatly do you leave the viv to air after using milton??

Just til the smell goes - prob an hour or so if there is good air movement - I make sure it is dry first

I use diluted 'Ark-Klens' "Safe germicide and cleanser for routine vivarium use"

I use this for spraying the vivs down with and wiping over.. doesnt really give off too much of a smell either. I am however thinking of getting some stronger stuff to give the vivs a blast over with ever couple of month just to be on the safe side!
