Ball pythons seem to be sensitive to dirty cages (they tend to refuse to eat when things aren't clean) so I keep mine in tubs with no substrate. I clean my tubs with a cleaner called F10SC every time I clean.

Good point. I do use a mix of Eco Earth and Repti-bark. I've used it for years and love it. It holds humidity well, retains odor and looks naturalistic.

I'm not a fan of paper towels.
