One of the sites (I forget the name) had a section about how to prepare the fleece so that liquids will go right through rather than being absorbed by the liner. Should this be done for my hedgie's liner as well? Or is it better to just cut it to the right size, wash it, and put it into the cage?
Thanks in advance for the help,
I've never heard of or been made aware of any fleece treatments for liners and I've made them for almost three years now, so I would say you are safe to wash it in a fragrance free detergent and put it in the cage. Remember not to use dryer sheets or fabric softener though.
Congrats on your new little one!
