Chlorhexidine (aka Nolvasan) is a very effective bacteriacide, virucide, and fungicide. 100% safe to use in reptile cages because it leaves no toxic residue or fumes. This is the same stuff veterinarians use to irrigate wounds and is even used as a mouthwash for animals and people. We have been using this product for years and it has our full endorsement.
The dilution rate for Chlorhexidine: 1 ounce (2 Tbsp) solution per 1 gallon of clean water.
Chlorhexidine Disinfectant Instructions
Fill a spray bottle with 32oz of water.
Add 1/4 oz of Chlorhexidine (1 1/2 tsp).
Slowly add the concentrate to the water allowing it to mix.
Your disinfectant is now ready to use!
Once mixed with water your disinfectant will be very effective for 6 weeks but will slowly start to lose effectiveness after that 6-week period. You can prepare smaller amounts of disinfectant as needed.

Chlorhexidine is a very safe disinfectant with a large margin of error for mixing the solution. The ratio for mixing does not have to be exact.
