    Rubbing alcohol is a good cleaner with no residue once it dries. Just spray it down, let it soak for 15 minutes or so, and rinse. You'll be good to go :)

    Rubbing alcohol should work, spray it on, let it dry, rinse, and you are done.

    No problem. :) The main thing you have to worry about with frogs is salmonella, so maybe a quick google search is in order in case there's a more effective method out there. :)
