Spot cleaning

Postby Tasnene » Wed Dec 11, 2019 9:49 am

Hi all , so right now Yeti is having watery poop. It’s my fault she didn’t have bugs for like 3-4 days . So right now it’s a nightmare cleaning her tank however even when she is pooping regular she poops all over her hammock and on her hut . I’m going to do a deep clean soon, but I was wondering what is the best way to spot clean? I use a mixture of water and vinegar but the poop stains are still there. I’m hoping when I do the deep clean it will come off. I’m also concerned about the smell of the vinegar because it does not air out fast enough and I’m not sure if the smell bothers her. She doesn’t seem bothered by it .

I use a vinegar water solution, and I also use baby wipes which hold up pretty well to "scrubbing"
I too dont really like the vinegar fumes bit that's why I usually use the baby wipes.

I also use a handheld steamer on occasion or when the mess gets too bad or too stuck on.

Agree with that. I use unscented baby wipes. Since Petey's favorite spot is his basking hammock, that's usually where he does his business too. Hate that but oh well, he does love his hammock.

+1 to the unscented baby wipes, and also to the vinegar/water solution. I, too, don't care for the lingering vinegar smell - but Figment doesn't seem to care much about it.

Thanks guys ! I just picked some up. So hopefully she doesn’t mind the smell of vinegar, it doesn’t seem that she does and well I don’t like it but I don’t care as long as she can handle it . I don’t want to use harsh chemicals.
