I am a huge fan of ReptiCarpet. It works great easy to wash and clean. Just throw it in the washing machine on the longest hottest setting and good to go. I'm starting to hear lots of bad things about it. So what are your opinions on ReptiCarpet? Is it really bad for reps or ok if properly washed?

I have never used it myself. it seems to be more of a hassle to me. it takes too long to clean. I have more than a few herps and for time sake I use more disposable substrate(aspen, sand, newspaper......etc.) also I think people run into problems when they don't clean it properly, but if it works for you and you aren't encountering problems I say keep using it

Thanks I guess to us it's just easier since we clean them all at the same time there is always a load and they go into the washer the clean pads go into cages and it's just a cycle the leopard gecko has a slightly different set up she defecats in one corner only so we put paper towel in that corner to make clean up easier.

I used indoor/outdoor carpet once on one enclosure and never again. It just took too long to clean so I have since used aspen. It doesn't smell bad, easy to clean and very convenient. I found the urates harder to clean with indoor/outdoor than the turds. I'm glad it's working out for you and that is what is most important.

When i had only a few reptiles I did use cage carpet but after i started getting more herps i switched to aspen and now to news paper and paper towels. It just saves time. Smile
