Now that you've got your fleece in hand, it's time to decide which absorbent liners to use!
As you may recall from our earlier article, fleece needs to be paired with an absorbent material to function effectively as guinea pig bedding. Remember, fleece is only meant to wick away liquids - it's the layer underneath that is essential to keeping your guinea pig dry. Several popular options are listed below.
8 ABSORBENT LINERS YOU CAN USE
- U-haul furniture pads
- Puppy training pads
- Cloth diapers
- Mattress protectors
- Zorb fabric
HOW MANY LAYERS DO YOU NEED?
There is no one size fits all answer. The amount you need varies depending on multiple factors, such as the size of your cage and the number of pigs you have. We use a single layer of towels over one layer of U-haul furniture pads. I found the combo fairly effective at keeping odor to a minimum.
Try using a combination of absorbent materials. Experiment to find out what works best for you and your piggies!
