I’ve Been Cleaning my Stuff with Tap Water!!

Post by hermit_crab_mommy » Thu Jul 09, 2020 11:18 am

I’ve been cleaning my food dishes and water dishes (both fresh and salt) with tap water without treating it. I got them Sunday and it’s the next Thursday, will that be okay if I change now or is it too late?

Not too late for sure. You can still continue to clean them with the tap water, just give them a rinse with dechlor water after.

I just rinse in tap water, been doing it since I first started. The remaining water will lead to chlorine to quickly evaporate; and chloramine/heavy metals are in such low concentrations to be an issue.

Its safe to do so :)
