Does anyone use Zorb as the absorbent layer under the fleece? I have some leftover from making diapers and was wondering if anyone had luck with it?

Zorb works great. It's quite pricey, but since you have leftover, you should try it.

If you need more absorbent layers, uhaul pads work equally well, and much cheaper.

I made a new fleece liner this past week for my cage with a zorb inner layer. I think it is amazing and can't wait to make more. I also made pillows for my girls to lounge on and they love them. 3764137642

Oh my goodness I love your cage! What a great idea to use stools. Is that a bent cube section creating that tunnel?

Thank you. Yes, it is a bent cube section with fleece woven through the grids to give them cover.

I use Zorb, and it's great. I just purchased another 10-yard bolt from Wazoodle (5.50/yard). This time I am going to sew my absorbent layer separate from the fleece. I use PUL on the bottom, Zorb in the middle and this time instead of fleece I am trying a thinner flannel for the top of the Zorb. I'll then place a double-layer fleece on over that, sewn separately. I am thinking that I can then flip the fleece or swap it out easily on days when the whole lining does not necessarily need to be changed. I guess we'll see if it works or not :)
