    I have raked everything up -this is a dirt floored run- should I spray with bleach water and let dry or what?

    Quote:You can. I probably would. Give it a good spray and let it dry completely.

    You could also use Oxine.

    What amount of Oxine/gallon or per quart would you use?

    Only thing I'd do is let the sun shine on it for a few days in a row. I would be surprised if bleach on dirt actually does anything because how deep into the soil do you think the bleach is going? I think you'd be wasting bleach.
