1: Remove the snake.

2: Clean the tub.

3: Spray a light film of mite/lice spray on inside & outside of tub (including lid, if applicable).

4: Spray a light film of mite/lice spray on the new paper towel or newspaper substrate.

5: Allow cage/tub and substrate to thoroughly dry.

6: Place newly-sprayed substrate into tub and and then put the snake back in.

No need to spray tub again for several months, even after future cleanings, due to the residual effect of the spray. Spray substrate each time it's replaced, for the next 3 - 4 weeks.

Some people spray their cages/tubs every 6 months as a precautionary/preventative measure.

Best wishes!
