Sanitize Melamine?

My bearded dragon recently was diagnosed with coccidia and parasites. So I am looking for ways to sanitize her enclosure and they all say things like bleach don’t kill them and things like ammonia you need to air tank out for hours after using.

I was going to steam clean it, but I assume the steam would warp the wood, so what could I use that doesn’t take long to dry, so that I don’t need to leave her out of her enclosure all day.

Please get some F 10 ebay or Amazon its a great vet disinfectant --- concentrated -- I keep it on hand for deep cleaning my dragons tank --- take the substrate out and use paper towels for now unless your using tile or shelf liner then the F10 will work good on that -- it doesnt have a smell that I have ever smelled -- I let it sit for 10 minutes then wipe down w/ a wet shop towel or dish towel ---

She is on shelf liner right now. So I can spray the f10 let sit 10 minutes and then wipe out with a wet dish towel. Dry it with another towel and put her right in?
So can do this while she takes a bath or something time wise.

It’s not legal here or something. Any other ideas?

And this works the same? I can just spray it, leave it for a few minutes mc wipe out and then place lizard right back in tank?
I have not used the wipeout or rescue- read the info I sent link for see if it gives directions- I am thinking it's the same as the F10 - wipeout I haven't read on that at all

Please don't leave your beardie unattended in a bath. We see horror stories here every little bit about beardies becoming aspirated in a bath.
They use the same muscle group to walk and breath, they can't do both at the same time. It can end in tragedy very quickly.

No she gets bathed in a small tote just tall enough she can’t jump out of. So it would be right next to me whole time I’m cleaning.

Then nursing them back to health and their final family home. I regularly help my reptiles vet with emergency appointments and I also provide the care in my little quenteen,
