    All of ours get a yearly bath , about a week after they are fully awake
    I don't have water bowls at all and very rarely mist , maybe a dribble in the mouth on a stinking hot day
    all the moisture they get is from their diet
    plenty of rocket ,endive , beans ,dandelion flowers and greens, hibiscus flower , pumpkin , fortnightly straw and blueberries
    substrate is sand and humidity is rarely higher than 25-27% , only time they are exposed to higher humidity is during their weekly sun bake outside
    been lucky enough to never had RI issues and even shedding issues

    Being houseproud, when Shayvele needs to poo (usually when I'm in the middle of breakfast) she'll bang on the glass and look at me; that's my cue to put about 10-15 mm of warm water in a plastic tub. I put her in, her tail goes up, the poo comes out, I dry her off and put her back. That's been the process for at least the last 5 or 6 years--she's got me well-trained. I don't think that really is much of a bath. She generally sheds in bits and pieces but they come off pretty well, so I haven't had to soak her.

    Haha, The Stooge is just as bad except I felt terrible that first year because he'd hold it and hold it and hold it until one of us got home and let him out.
    His enclosure now is low to the ground and the door is left open so he comes out, craps on the tiles, carefully avoids it touching him (the poop is lava style) and then gets back up on his hammock.
