baby wipes on the tank?

Post by Whurmy on Sat Mar 24, 2012 6:38 pm

So I'm getting my tank ready for the boy I'm bringing home on the fourth, and I said I was gonna wash it, but my mom said that taking baby wipes to it would probably be fine for now, since I just got it and it's not dirty. So I did that this morning, but when I stick my head in there, it smells like baby wipes. I don't like the smell. Upset

The smell will go away by the time my boy comes home, but should I give it a real, thorough washing out? I got it from walmart, not in a box and lidless, so. ^^;

Also, what should I use to wash it out? I'm guessing just dawn dish soap will do?

You can use unscented baby wipes to spot clean the glass or dust the lid in between cleanings. I'd just wash it out before you ready it for him finally to rid it of the fragrance. I use dish soap and hot water, then rinse well with hot water. Or vinegar and water works well too. White vinegar! Then let it dry fully before you add the bedding. Happy

I use baby wipes between cleanings as well and for as complete clean I use warm- hot water and dish soap. I do agree you should give the tank a wash before bringing him home. And vinagar is good too- I just hate the smell. Lol

Same here, I would also cleaned it well. Just because it's not dusty don't mean it don't have germs on it.

We also use alcohol wipes that we can order from my husbands work. They work well between good cleanings.

Wow, thanks everyone! Happy I'll give it a good wash, or at least a real good rinse, before he comes home.

I can't stand the smell of vinegar, so I think I'll stick with dishsoap. :') Thanks so much guys. :3

No baby wipes. Bad idea. Vinegar and water is a great choice. I use a drop of dawn (blue) no softeners. To a ten gallon take. When I clean them out and rinse rinse rinse. I just use water to rinse and wipe clean
