Is there any kind of soap I can use for bathing

[TOPIC AUTO-LOCKED DUE TO INACTIVITY]

May be a stupid question but my berdie Izzy stinks and needs a bath really bad. I was wondering if there is any kind of mild soap or any soap I may have laying around that I can use when I give her a bath that wont hurt her :study: ?

Can you really use baby soap?
I have been wondering if there is anyway to give them baths with something more than just water.

I think it is because only part of my tank is ventalated so that the tank stays warm enough. And mabe because I don't always have time to clean the carpet stuff everyday

Thats another reason i suggested nolvasan as it is safe to ingest. In fact it is often used to aid in the treatment of mouth rot as well.
