Default Washing the Fleece?

I heard that the scented laundry detergent isn't good for them, so what would be a good laundry detergent? I want to make sure I'm doing things right, haha.

You want non-scented/hypoallergenic laundry detergent. The brand really doesn't matter. I think the bottle I'm using now is called Tide Free.

Just make sure the label says it's perfume free.

A lot of brands have a type of detergent that says "free and clear" which usually means it has no dye or perfumes. I found handy little pre measures packs, "all mighty pacs." I got I think doses for about five dollars.

you can also just use plain vinegar if your only doing hedgehog wash, other people use vinegar anyways in the rinse cycle to get rid of the odor

I use All Free + Clear. Her stuff comes out with basically no smell at all, so need for vinegar in Sophie's wash.

I use Tide Free & Gentle. The bottle cost about $25. It will last for years, if you're using it for one hedgehog. You can use any brand as long as there are no perfumes or dyes, it doesn't have to be the most expensive .

Okay, thank you everyone. If you do use vinegar, does the stuff come out smelling like vinegar?
