Any tips?
Where should I put her while I'm cleaning her cage up?
When is the best time to do this?
If the smell is bad I would remove the bedding with new bedding and clean the cage with water/vinegar. Your hedgehog can stay in a plastic container, play area, or other enclosed area leave their home or a fleece bag or blanket for them to sleep in and they will probably sleep if its day time.

Time varies on hedgehogs most are cranky when woken up but will tolerate a day time wake up. Some can be very puffy and upset about it no telling with their personalities

Hedgehogs aren't naturally stinky creatures so once she is adapted it'll get better
