    Couldn't find the original thread but some good ideas on their.

    One was coir Pete for substrate but I'm unsure what ones are safe.
    Other was method brand glass cleaners as they are non toxic but still want to be 100% sure.

    Do use any substitutes to the expensive pet shop brands available at bunnings ect? Any ideas for substrate and cleaners welcome.

    I hated the coir peat and have tried other substrates, but have come full-circle back to the one I started with - Aspen shavings. Compresses a little flatter and more stable (less shifting as the pythons move around on it) and it looks the best IMO.

    As for cleaners - if you want to avoid chemicals, go for a vinegar and water mix in a spray bottle (as vinegar is anti-bacterial)
