What can I use to deodorize a turtle tank?

It smells so bad! I tried baking soda, vinegar, bleach, and spic n span lol. Nothing works!

  • is it a plastic tank that they are in? if that's the case, the plastic is holding in the smells. if it's glass, try letting them play in something else for the day while you let the tank soak in something like baking soda and water. i wouldn't put much of anything else in there for fear it may not get rinsed out well enough.

  • we had a turtle for 6 yr and those guys just stink, we changed his dirt out once a month and he was by a window so on warm days we opened it up to air it out, but they are just stinky
