Cleaning decoration

Postby Mishathedragon » Sun Nov 10, 2019 3:09 pm

I got some sandblasted grapevine for my beardies enclosure from an expo. I just want to make sure she doesn’t get anything from the expo and the other reptiles. I was wondering if I can clean it with Flukers Super Scrub with Organic Cleaner or just water.

To be 100% sure I'd place it in the oven (set at 140 degC for a few hours), important the temperature of the entire piece reach the oven temperature and stay there for couple of hours.

But if too big to fit in the oven - F10sc made up 1:125 , immerse in this solution and let soak in for about day , may been to put a brick or two on top to ensure it stays completely submerged , then air dry ( this will drown any tiny unwanted insects and will kill virtually all moulds , spores , bacteria and viruses ).

There after a blast with garden hose to knock any sticky poo or urates off , and then a spray with F10sc made up 1:250 and airdried for about 30mins will do a great job at keeping it clean.

Those products are a waste of money. Really just expensive water.

Off hand I can't remember, bought my current bottle about 3 or 4 years ago, a bottle of the F10sc goes a very long way.

Try the local vet if you can't find it online , on ebay or amazon.

I’ve searched everywhere and could not find any F10sc. Could I just bake it and use a different solution. Any suggestion for a substitute

You can use diluted bleach solution and yes to the oven. For F10, try searching F10 veterinary disinfectant. That should turn it up at Pangea, LLLReptile and several other places. :0)
Never knew I could get so happy about poop, or so comfortable with bugs. :-D

Ok and I’ve seen f10scxd alot why can’t I use that. Also should I only bake the wood if it’s small enough for the oven and don’t use F10sc or should I bake the wood then use F10sc to disinfect it more. To add on it’s a sandblasted grapevine from exoterra that I got from a expo.
