How to prep a log for my beardie's cage?

Not open for further replies.
I know I've read an article somewhere about how to prep a piece of wood for a beardie's cage but I can't find the article. I've picked up a great log and scrubbed it down good then let it dry in the hot sun. Should I do something else?


what i do for mine is soak it in bleach then scrub it untel u can smell the bleach anymore then let dry somewhere warm or u could bake it


i didn't do anything to the wood in Spike's viv. Made sure there weren't any loose pieces of bark, bugs, etc. and put it in there.

some people bake it in the oven at 350 for 30 min r so to kill any bacteria or mites

is there another way? my roommate might have me taken to the looney land if i start baking wood in the oven haha!

I just took Rocky's log outside and used some liquid dish detergent and a scrub brush to scrub it real good. It seems to have worked well.
