    My guess would be its not completely reptile safe, but Im not a chemist, also I think it would depend on how you use it. I wouldnt leave it wet in anyway, in the cage, It does give off fumes,(much more when wet) that Im sure cant be good for any animal to breath, in a confined box.
    I only use it on the front panel of my cages, which is either glass or acrylic, cleaning, inside and out and making sure I wipe it completely dry. Never had a problem.

    NO it is made with coaltars which are extremely toxic to cold blooded animals. Use bleach or vinegar instead! It is not worth the risk and I do not even use it to clean my windows because if the mist makes its way to them in the other room, it could kill them.
