I have been wiping the bottom on of cage with Clorox disinfecting wipes once a week.I figured for the dead crickets and poop clean up. Is this ok?
We use them for household purposes, but offhand, I don't know exactly what's in them.

I use Nature's Miracle for Stinky Dragons (not it's real name). FOLLOW DIRECTIONS.

There should be no trace of soap if you rinse properly.
In a perfect world, maybe. IME, nobody's perfect, and there is usually—if not always—residue.

Less potentially harmful residue with other products, and none with alcohol or peroxide. :)

If you use any product beyond water be sure to do a rinse afterward. If I use anything harsh like bleach products I do it when they are out of the cage. I use activated hydrogen peroxide but I haven't been able to find it post covid. Lysol makes one I like fumes aren't an issue.

How about solid hydrogen peroxide :) They use this to de algae fish ponds.

I have never used it in that form. If it breaks down into the same components it should be fine.
From the page:
breaks down to oxygen, water and sodium carbonate (soda ash) in your wash water.
Sodium Carbonate (not to be confused with Sodium Bicarbonate) is generally considered harmless to humans in small quantities. I have no idea about chameleons, or the 1% not included in the "99% pure".

At least I know that hydrogen peroxide solution breaks down into water & oxygen.
