I use a quatanary ammonium product. Quastyl-D is a common brand. I also use chlorhexadine acetate. Once out of quarantine, I don't use anything other than hot water and perhaps a mild dish soap.
I limit my use of disinfectants, because like antibiotics, their can be a resistance built to them by many pathogens. Once a collection is established, you don't really have any unwanted pathogens of concern. At this point in time, manual removal of waste by scrubbing is all that is necessary IMO. The "big gun" disinfectants that I do use, are because I do not want anything to enter my established collection.
