Litter Training Fleece Liner Question

I have really enjoyed seeing photos of everyone's cages on this forum and I am learning about more and more options as I go. Our babies, Piper and Pepper, are currently in a Midwest Guinea Habitat Plus cage, but I am planning on going to a C & C cage before too long, using fleece liners instead of the Carefresh bedding.

My question is this: in all the photos, the first thing I think of is "how do these people keep all this fleece clean and odor free?" Don't the guinea pigs urinate and make it wet? Or is there something I am missing about fleece bedding?

I have heard piggies can use a litter box. I see that our girls have a specific corner they go to most often and I figure a litter box there would be a good idea. What does one put in the litter box: Carefresh, aspen shavings, what? I don't want to fill it with hay because that is one of their main foods. There will be more room in the C&C cage for sure, but I don't want an entire side to be a litter box. Suggestions? Ideas? Thanks!
 
The guinea pig seems too like to potty in corners and the covered areas where they hide. If you place there litter boxes in those corners they will mainly keep the mess there. In fact my piggies are trained well enough that I put in a 1 x5 grid section of green indoor outdoor carpet. They don't potty on it and they love running on it. For the most part on other parts of the cage they poo and pee in litter boxes.. But anyway the fleece idea is very clean especially if you use the litter boxes. We also use little cut out squares around litter boxes and usually only have to spot clean those. Maybe I'm just lucky but the piggies are pretty smart and like to keep there poo in few locations. And training wise I always moved misplaced poo in the litter boxes. What you put in litter boxes don't really matter but I find the pine better to stay in the box then corn cob. But iv never used the stayfresh. Hope this helps
