PostSubject: Baking Soda   Wed Nov 07, 2012 2:37 am

Hello everybody,
for the people who didn't know i thought i'm going to post this...

I followed an advice from a snake breeder i met at a reptile convention and put baking soda on the bottom of my rat tubs to neutralize the urin and poop smell. It works pretty well and i haven't seen any changes on the rats. It stretches the cleaning out for at least 2 days and you might only have to clean crowded tubs once a week plus the smell is way less intense..

I hope you found this as helpful as i do..

Vanilla extract? How much do you add (ratio) and what does it do? Reduce the ammonia? I'm interested in this one too!

This is my google search.

vanilla water rodents

It was a while ago I read this, I believe it was on a website and not a question on a forum, but it has been literally years since I read it because I did it in Iowa when I first got my rack.

Be careful. If you use a watering system, the vanilla could clog the valves over time causing floods or non functioning valves.
