I don't think I'd use it personally, but I also don't see much point in using those products, heh. Do you already have your hedgehog? At the very least, I wouldn't use it preventatively, and would only worry about it if you're having serious problems with the poop smell. Keep in mind as well that stinky poop can be an indication of health issues (such as intestinal infections), and that while babies often have stronger-smelling poop and urine, it usually gets better when they get older. Other than that, usually the smell isn't too bad if you spot-clean daily and clean the cage completely once or twice a week. You can also help with smell by putting an open box of baking soda near the cage (make sure hedgie can't get to it), or with an air purifier in the room.

Years ago I know of a few people who tried it but I don't remember anyone ever finding it worked.

Ditto on everything Lilysmommy said. Some foods make for smellier poop than others. Also, they smell worse when it's humid.

Personally I wouldn't use it. Its just for your benefit and isn't any benefit at all to the hedgehog. With as prone as hedgehogs are to cancer I'm not comfortable feeding anything to my hedgehog that will change the way their body works.
