Reptile Safe Air Freshener

Postby BeardeddragonDino » Sun Feb 23, 2020 12:19 pm

I know that reptiles are very sensitive to scents and smells, but I was wondering if anyone knows of some reptile safe air fresheners that could be used in a room that houses reptiles?

That would be very difficult to do. It's not so much the scent as it is the carrier. Most scented candles, oils and sprays have harsh chemicals in them to help maintain and spread the fragrance. Almost all of them would be detrimental to a reptile in some way or another.

Safest way is open a window and let some fresh air inside.

If you want scent use plants one I use is mint plant smells great and they can eat it. Anything with scented essential oils in it will kill them

Baking soda. DW got one that hangs in the back of the car. It takes care of "wet dog smell". :laughing6:

Maybe a small air purifier in the room?

I too use air purifiers. If your purifier has a carbon filter in it, it will help eliminate odors too.

Activated charcoal and baking soda work basically the same way--they absorb odors rather than covering them up with more powerful stinkiness. :lol:

I have two dragons, a turtle and an aquarium all in the same room. I find that if you spot clean every time a "gift" is left for you, and completely sanitize the floor once a week, odors are not an issue.
I spot clean and sanitize with F10SC. I have never had issues with odors.

So far, I've only had to spot clean w/ Nature's Miracle for Stinky Dragons, and (dragon) odors are likewise not an issue. Dog odors are something else... :roll:

I'm not sure the OP was talking about reptile odors or other kinds (pet, human, or other) ambient in the room or not... :dontknow:

Now snakes and iguanas are the ones that smell up a room.
