Default Dirt in cage for a day?

Hello everyone! Iv been having my hedge hog Ash for almost a year now, he loves to go outside and play in the dirt! Like LOVES it lol. I was wondering if it would be alright to put dirt in his cage for a day, then put his normal bedding back in after that. Would it hurt him or irritate him?

If you use safe dirt (not just out your garden dirt) it should be fine although if your only doing it for a day may be better to put it in a gravel tray or something like that, it will make it way easier to cleaning up.

You could always look into natural/bioactive set ups that way you can just switch it to dirt if he loves it that much it may be better.
