Katt did you read my pages that I posted, they pretty much boasted how much better they were and how much safer there were since both of them could be used to disinfect wounds too.

How long do you leave the hydrogen peroxide and the vinegar on before you rinse?

To disinfect surfaces, generously apply the solution to the surface with a saturated cloth, sponge or spray bottle, or let the object soak in a container of the solution. Let the solution sit for at least 10 minutes; 15-20 minutes is better. To sterilize, let the solution sit for at least one-half hour (be sure to check the manufacturer's directions to see if a stronger solution is necessary for sterilization). Rinse out thoroughly, especially when using bleach or ammonia. If there is any doubt about your ability to thoroughly rinse out an enclosure, or the enclosure is made of wood, you may wish to think twice about using bleach or ammonia. Any residual of these substances left in the tank can cause severe, if not fatal, problems for your animals. Both substances produce strong fumes which can cause internal and external irritations. (Simple Green's aroma is artificial sarsaparilla and is not toxic to reptiles; no information has been found in reference to its use in amphibian enclosures.)

Vinegar is a great cleaner for inside the enclosure, Quatsyl kills all the bad stuff in it but u have to rinse it out thouroughly. I like quatsyl though!

In tests run at Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University, pairing the two mists killed virtually all Salmonella, Shigella, or E. coli bacteria on heavily contaminated food and surfaces when used in this fashion, making this spray combination more effective at killing these potentially lethal bacteria than chlorine bleach

If I had Psuedomonas in my collection, I would burn all my cages and start from scratch!! I wouldn't mess around with that.

The Virkon is effective against the pseudomosas and other bacteria.... some fungus and 18 virus families. It's fairly cheap, too - $5 packet will make 10L of solution.
