I made the change over to tile last night (was using repti-carpet) and I need to know what you guys use to disinfect things. The last thing I want is to kill my beardie because I unknowingly used harmful toxins to clean his cage.

disinfect the tile?
maybe this is a dumb question... but why disinfect the tile? unless there is something wrong with ur beardie?

i just scrub the tiles off in lukewarm water every week.

if there is something wrong, like a parasite or for watever reason, i use a bleach solution diluted in water. the only thing is watever i disinfect that way i let dry out completely for at least four days.

hope that answered ur question. :D

I use chlorhexadine (i.e. brand Nolvasan) solution and dilute it to a 2% concentration. It is used as a surgical disinfectant and is very safe at that strength. You can buy it online easily and the generic is a lot less expensive than the brand. It is important to order chlorhexadine "solution" and not the "scrub." I would caution against using bleach on anything that you plan on using again right away in the viv: it can take a long time for those fumes to dissipate.
 
I use antibacterial dish soap diluted with water...I have a scrub brush handy with it and simply paper towel up the 'poo' and spray the tile with the diluted soap and give it a couple of scrubs...wipe up the area and I'm done. The whole process takes about 3 minutes and the tiles clean...I have a tote handy for the times that the 'poo' ends up on a rock.

Mirage came out of brumation on April 26. He was doing great. On May 2 he started acting funny. We just redid his tank, and he keeps going into one of his hides. He just lays there. He shows no intrest in food. HELP!
is tape safe for fixing something in my leopard geckos hide?
Day 3 of brumation. It's a struggle. I really miss my little guy. 😔
