Default Bathing Hedgehog Snout?

Hi,

So a couple of days ago I noticed my hedgehog had poop boots and a snout with several poop here and there. I took her to a bath, which tackled her poop boots, but not her snout. I'd like to know how I could effectively clean her snout without doing much stress to her. (Applies a bit to her ears too)

Any thoughts?

Thanks!

Note: Her poop isn't actually directly on her nose/mouth, rather, on the side of her nose, so I am assuming she can still smell her surroundings.

Maybe just try to wipe her face down with a damp face cloth?

Hi,

Thanks for the advice!
Sadly I can't get my Rae-Rae to calm down, so it was pretty hard to clean her snout. I suppose I'll try again tomorrow.
Also, I've noticed that the poop on her left side is gone. Could it be that she licked it off, or that it fell off?
I'm very concerned if she has licked it off. Any advice would be helpful.
Again, thanks!

If she licked it off she's fine. Many hedgehogs clean their poopy feet.

Sometimes Bramble even stops dead in his tracks on his wheel to sniff and lick his poop!
