Wow, I have never seen that! That's sounds weird, but I guess it might work. I have no idea how you would clean it. Maybe you could take it out like every day and spray it off with a hose and let it dry before you put it back in. I am not to sure on this one......

I don't think astro turf is suitable for guinea pigs (as well as not being a very good bedding in terms of absorbancy, hygeine and comfort). They are extremely likely to chew on it and ingesting it would be dangerous. I'd stick to something like fleece or towels if you don't want to use a regular bedding.

I thought it was a pretty cool idea but then I realized they could eat it.

Loves to travel you could always use welcome matts, or rugs instead of astro turf. With the rugs be sure not to wash them in the washer because the rubber on the back will rip and stuff. You can take them outside and wash them on a patio, or in the tub (If no one in your family minds, and you clean the tub well srry had to add the clean tub part (lol)
