It says you can clean and disinfect with it as well as clean fruits and veggies and rinsing is optional. I wonder if it is safe for Cham enclosure cleaning. Ingredients are
purified water
hydrogen peroxide
glacial acetic acid
phosphoric acid
dodecyl benzene sulfonic acid

it smells like vinegar. It says to disinfect to spray surface and let sit for 10 minutes then wipe with clean dry microfiber cloth. For cleaning fruits and veg, spray with liberal amount of product, let stand for 1 minute. A water rinse is optional.

Probably but I wouldn't spray it in the cage but rather spray on a cloth wipe and do a rinse wipe with another damp cloth.

or you can do what I did:

  1. remove cham
  2. Liberally spray all sides, branches, leaves, and stems with a mix of dawn dishsoap and 70% alcohol.
  3. Let stand 5-10 mins
  4. Hope you used extra bubbly dawn
  5. Bring garden hose through the front door while husband is not home
  6. Spray entire inside of enclosure
  7. Oops - dont spray straight up or you’ll get your ceiling and blinds wet.
  8. Crap - dont spray the doors either, they aren’t water tight
  9. Grab 18 towels and lay them under the door
  10. Nows a good time to remember you forgot to empty the water drainage resevoir.
  11. Use some of those towels to dry up overflow
  12. Desperately look for a shop vac
  13. Spray once more to ensure all residue is rinsed away
  14. Point fans on the floor, enclosure, blinds, 1st floor to speed dry time
  15. Check out the front door for the 13th time to make sure husband isnt back yet
  16. Remove hose from home
  17. Crap - hoses drip. Grab 19th towel to dry the water drip trail.
  18. Squirt entire front porch ao husband doesnt notice drips leading into house
  19. Pray for next hour floors dry
  20. Be prepared to kick fans over at a moments notice if anyone walks in
  21. Place cham back in beautifully clean enclosure.

I did some research on dodecyl benzene sulfonic acid and it wasn’t good so I’ll probably return it. How can they say you can clean fruits and veggies with it and rinsing is optional when just googling tells you this stuff is not good!!🤬

I just take my cham out and spray with vinegar. Let it sit, than spray with water liberally. Don’t use a hose of course.
