Cleaning Cleaning my C&C cage

I have a 2X4 C&C cage, i use carefresh ultra as my bedding because fleece got too smelly :/

I feel as if I have to clean every day! I take my piggies out every other day and spot clean in their usual "spots". I also do a full "deep clean" once a week where i take everything out and clean it and clean the coroplast as well. Is this good enough? What can I do to make my pigs go all in one area? Thankyou!
 
It's hard to train them. They either do it by themselves or they don't.

When you were using fleece, did you have a litter pan/kitchen area? If your pigs get used to carefresh and they may choose to go only on carefresh and leave the fleece clean.

What you can do to encourage them is to put hay/pellets/water in the area with carefresh. Most pigs do business where they eat. They also prefer dark corners.

Mine also go where they sleep so I have small fleece pads that I replace everyday.
