If you have fleece how often do you wash it. And will it stink from all the pee on the fleece and what do you put under the fleece so it will soak up the pee. Thanks:D

The 2 sticky threads in the bedding section will answer your questions, http://www.guineapigcages.com/forum/bedding/21568-fleece-project-study.html and http://www.guineapigcages.com/forum/bedding/20746-fleece-types-debates.html

Basically you wash the fleece once a week with 1/2 a cup of vinegar, you can use a small hand vacuum to vacuum up the poops daily.

It shouldnt smell if you have prepared the fleece appropriatley beforehand. An absorbent underlay like mattress pads, towels or puppy pads should be used to soak up the urine.

I normally wash my fleece once a week. I found the only thing that makes it smell is the hay and poos on it. I put from this order to the fleece: a little aspen, newspaper, an old bed sheet, and a towel then the fleece.It can go a week or 2 without being changed this way as long as I spot clean the hay and poos.

I also recommend doing a forum search on "fleece," you will end up with more information than you know what to do with! I use fleece and my personal favorite for an absorbent layer is mattress pads. There is a thread about them in the forum if you want more information. Let us know if any more specific questions come up!
