Sealing wood

Postby wliebbe » Fri Mar 16, 2018 11:50 am

I bought a hollow wooden log piece that Smaug likes to bask on. Unfortunately, he also thinks it the toilet. It's a pain to clean the poo off because they drying time is forever. Is there something safe I can seal it with to make it easier to wash off and dry?

Since it's a basking log I probably wouldn't seal it as the seal may break down after constant contact and heat exposure. I usually rinse my driftwood pieces off and wipe them clean and then bake them in the oven on low (~250 or so) for half an hour which both sanitizes and dries them.
