Default Baths and Nailclipping

How often should I bath and clip nails for my hedgehog? Also, any recommendations for a soap/ shampoo product?

I'd say as often as you feel necessary for both. I mean if he/she has poop on their quills then give him/her a bath. :3 Same with nails, if you notice they're getting a little long then give them a trim.
Be careful not to over due baths because they can dry out skin.

I use oat meal in the bath and use a tooth brush to clean the quills.

I let a sock with oatmeal sit in the water and i use Cetaphil on a toothbrush to wash her quills. I also squeeze the oatmeal sock on her back to moisturize... It feels pretty gross, but it works!
