How do you clean your beardie's cage?

[TOPIC AUTO-LOCKED DUE TO INACTIVITY]

Just wondering how often and what you clean your lizard's cage with. My husband wanted me to use the windex and I told him I didn't know if that was a good idea. I saw some things in the store--but it is confusing as they say "safe for reptiles", yet their instructions say: Remove you lizard/reptile before using this product.
I did see one the other day and it says NATURES BEst (or something like that) it is supposed to be very safe--does anyone know which one I am talking about?
Well gotta go put the lizard back in his cage. Seems to be doing well today (he had a rough evening yesterday)

If u don't want to use the cleaners @ the store, Beautiful Dragons.com has a list of good disinfectants. I think they tell u to remove the lizard because of the smell & u def don't want him licking the floor it if it's still a lil damp. lol! I usually take Drago out, clean his tank & then give him a bath while waiting for the age to air out. I use Zoo Med Wipe Out & havent had any issues thus far.

I clean my cage once a week with bleach water solution and a really good rince, then let it dry completely.

as far as just cleaning the glass you can use a mixture of vinegar and water.
