Bearded dragon bath

I’ve heard not to give your bearded dragon a bath in a kitchen sink of bathtub. I got a container to give mine a bath in. Where do you guys usually dump the water once you’re done?

The toilet. Especially since there is a good chance a dragon will poop in the bath
1 dragon Devlyn, 1 tree frog Charlie, 1 cat Greysie, & lots of plants

It's also not a bad idea to disinfect whatever you're using following each bath.
Thorough washing with soap & water should do it, or if you want to dig a little deeper...

What will disinfect salmonella? (Clorox wipes will kill Salmonella and Pinworm eggs)
What will disinfect adenovirus?

I'm not comfortably sure Clorox wipes will kill adenovirus. Perhaps some else knows for sure with a link(?)

I list these two because when I asked my herp veterinarian if there were anything to be concerned about contracting from a BD, he mentioned these two. They are primarily transmitted through feces, though salmonella (at least) can also be transmitted though a bite.
