How to safely clean a large fish tank, heat rock, and green pet floor mat that houses my three pet Gardner snakes?

I need to clean it but I don't know what soap to use (or what to use) on the mat or glass. I need advice since my pets mean so much to me and their health and happiness is important to me as well.

You should double-check because I don't keep reptiles, but a non-toxic cleaner would be to make a 50/50 mix of white vinegar and water, and put it in a $1 spray bottle. I know it's 100% safe for all mammals, just spritz, wipe, and wipe again with plain water. Let dry and reassemble. If something is particularly dirty (like a rock) then let it soak a couple minutes in plain HOT water.

its a heat rock soit has a cord for the outlet... water and elecrticity sound unsafe... but I will look up the cleaner you said. and soak the green mat in it if it's safe.

You can buy the white vinegar at your grocery store, it's really really cheap, like $2 for a gallon! You're welcome :)
