Does he stink or does his poop smell?

If he stinks, he is probably getting some urine and feces on him while he runs. There isn't much you can do, but you can always wipe him down with a damp paper towel or cloth.

If his poop smells, check the ingredients in his food. Some fish can make their poo smelly.

Provide proper and well-ventilation not just in the cage but also in the room (i do understand it is getting cold somewhere else or in your country) and placing a small dish of baking soda/powder or coal beside the cage away from hedgie's reach have helped me a lot in the past.

I use a box of baking soda next to my cages also. I mix it up here and there and change it out every 30days or so. It really helps.

Do you spot clean the cage and scrub the wheel daily?
