I unintentionally screwed this up and washed my hedgehog's wheel with a scented dish soap and she hasn't run in it for two days now, where before she was running a ton every night.
Will she eventually get used to the smell and go back to it? I try putting her on the wheel and she doesn't seem to comprehend that it's even the same thing.
