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

  1. Fill a spray bottle with 32oz of water.
  2. Add 1/4 oz of Chlorhexidine (1 1/2 tsp).
  3. Slowly add the concentrate to the water allowing it to mix.
  4. 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.

  • About 1/8th bottle (3/4 tsp) of concentrate to 16oz of water
  • About 1/16th bottle (3/8 tsp) of concentrate to 8oz of water

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.
