Default Need help with caging ideas

Ok so I notice on here that there are many different caging setups,
and I saw that some people like to use like a blanket or cloth down on the cage instead of using carefree bedding.
Well I am growing a like tired of the bedding, it constantly gets in his food and water.
It takes a lot out of my paycheck to constantly buy more because it can go quickly.
So is using a blanket/cloth down a lot better, and is it a lot easier to clean?

Liners/blankets are way easier to clean. If you have enough liners for a whole week it's best. Then when you have a small laundry load to do it's easy.

I just keep a special little hamper just for the hedgie blankets. Then once it's full I shakeoff all the kibbles and poops into the garbage, and wash them in the laundry.

Totally easier and more economical than shavings. My Daisy came from a carefresh home, the poor girl had bits stuck in her quills for a week after she came home... I can't imagine how awkward that would be to have bits stuck in quills.

Thank you I thought it would be a lot easier that way. Yeah my Lenny will have the bedding stuck in his quills every now and then. I would try to get it out for him. I never thought how uncomfortable that would be for him
