I wouldn’t use scented things because I wouldn’t know what the chemicals in the cleaner stuff would do so I stick to disinfectant products specifically for reptiles and the f10 is at the top of my list. Homemade cleaners consists of mixing chemicals which bad.

I never used vinegar on any of my reptile supplies because I don’t know the outcome what it can do to them. But I use to use bleach/water and they been fine. I don’t think vinegar kills bacteria because when cleaning reptile cages you wanna kill the bacteria that came from feces and other things.

I just put a little bit like cap full from the bleach bottle top just make sure you rinse the tank good leaving no bleach smell

So I wipe it like I would the windows and then I rinse it with water? Sounds easy enough.

Vinegar kills almost all bacteria and removes water stains, as well as is also safe to use around animals. The only downside I can think of is that it may be a bit smelly for the few minutes after you use it... It’s probably one of the best choices for this, though.

Hmm.. I don’t know. I just use straight vinegar whenever I want to clean something, but 1 part vinegar to 8 parts water is said to work well on glass. It may lose some of its disinfecting properties in this low of a ratio, though.
