So I finally have an enclosure big enough to fit a piece of cork bark I bought a long time ago... But after trying to disinfect it in a mix of water and bleach (so, diluted) and rinsing it multiple times... It still kind of smells like bleach to me. I tried boiling it and currently drying it again so see if it smells , again. But I was wondering what I should do... Is there a safe method to get rid of potential bleach residue? Is rinsing and drying really enough ? Should I just throw the cork bark out? My tarantula is pretty small and I don't want it to die because of bleach....X.x Just did it this way because it's what I read but I'm having trouble getting rid of that bleach smell.
