    I remember seeing someone talk about it on here before but i can't remember if it was not to use it round cats, or only to use that 1 :eek:
    I have a little sicky mess to clean up on my wooden floor, i have paper towels and dettol, because we run out of our usual wipes.

    I don't think it is safe...anything hat goes cloudy in water is a danger. However, I am sure if you rinse and rinse again you can remove any residue if you have already used it.;)

    Thanks paddy, i have gone over it a few times with water and to be honest i only used a tiny bit, i just needed something a bit more powerful to scrub it with cause water alone wasn't doing the trick :D
    Just out of curiosity do you know which 1 is best? it's so hard to tell cause they never put 'don't use around animals' on any of them :rolleyes::

    I was recommended Milton - the stuff you steralise baby bottles in - as a good alternative to bleach or disinfectant. It leaves almost no smell. I have tried it and had no adverse effects.

    We use one we got from pets at home - it's purple, can't think what it's called now though.

    Thank you so much!!! My brain was squeezing and twisting trying to remember this name! I was nearly buying the Italian equivalent as it was the only one I could remember the name! Oh, what a relief! Pheeww!

    I usually check the chemicals in this site My Pets Pages - Your Pet's Home On The Internet - Create a free pet website and I personally wouldn't use anything with glutaraldehyde as I find it too irritant.
