    Question Best Way to Clean Reptile Carpet


    LOG IN TO CLOSE THIS AD   


    I've been using Reptile Carpet in Spotty's 20 gallon long tank ever since I first got him, and I would always soak it in water and let it air dry, but I've noticed that it doesn't remove all the stains effectively so what's the best way to clean reptile carpet? I've heard of people putting it in the washing machine, soaking it in hot water or washing it with baking soda and vinegar.

    Try soaking reptile carpet in hot water with added baking soda and vinegar. Thoroughly rinse. See what happens.

    3/8 inch ceramic tiles conduct heat well, are attractive, easy maintenance, and permanent. For a 20 long you'd need two 12 x 12s and a third 12 inch tile cut.

    This is how I used to clean repti-carpet: I'd keep 2 pieces so I could switch them out. For cleaning I hand wash it with soap and water and then put it in the washer on the spin cycle and air dry.
