    Mattress Pad Mattress Pad vs. Uhaul

    Oh, good, I'm glad I found the right ones. I found a website (I think it's called Vitality Medical) that has the ones that I assume they use in hospitals, as it is a medical website. I figure, if they work in hospitals, they'll most likely work in a guinea pig cage, and they have a bunch of...

    Try washing it with vinegar also. Once you've washed it 7+ times, I think it would be okay to just go ahead and put it in the cage. My fleece wasn't wicking either, but I had to have some sort of bedding for my girls when they first came home, so I put it in, and when I tested it outside of the...

    Bedding Other options?

    Fleece is pretty much unique in its ability to wick away moisture rather than absorbing it, keeping your piggies dry and happy. Fleece seems pretty expensive when you look at Joanns prices, but if you can get it on sale, its actually pretty reasonable. Joanns fleece normally goes on sale in the...
