Cleaning

Since Leo shed yesterday and I haven't cleaned his cage since he got here a week ago, I did a thorough cleaning yesterday. Having the utility tub as a base made cleaning really easy...but I was wondering what I can be using to disinfect his cage. I imagine any cleaning supplies (like Clorox) are out of the question. Is a little bit of Dawn dish soap okay? If not, what can I use? To clarify, I'm asking about disinfecting just the tub, where he doesn't go very often. For the leaves I just wiped them down with a damp paper towel.

Repti-San, Zoo Med Wipe-Out, or either/both of the FXSC veterinary concentrates

I realize your only talking about the tub here but the entire viv doesn’t need to be frequently deep cleaned, once a year max. Spot cleaning is more than enough to maintain a healthy living space. After all, chams come with an immune system, let them use it!

Good to know! Thanks for the help guys! So using Dawn won't hurt him?
