Nice tips, i'll make my hedge more liners and put all of them them in the washing machine.

I always do an extra rince, then once they're out throw a rince cycle on with nothing in the machine, but that's because the new washer at this place sucks.

Being able to machine wash them is one of the best things about liners. It's so easy! XD

If anything, hedgehog liners are probably better - they have little turds you can pick off and throw out before putting the liners in. Not so much the case with diapers, haha.

It's perfectly fine - that's what pretty much everyone does. You should use unscented detergent, though, otherwise the smell could bother your hedgehog. Just make sure you pick off any pieces of poop and shake it out before it goes in the washing machine. Same goes for any quills on the liner. Quills are the only thing that might end up in your clothes, though usually that's only if you wash them in the same load. I suggest making 3-4 liners so you can save them up to do a small hedgehog-only load of laundry every week or so, so you don't have to run the washing machine for only one liner.

thanks, moxieberry!
My hedge is just the same colour of archimedes, but it is a female.

Re: Fabric liner for the cage`s floor.

Spot-clean daily - pick off the little turds, etc. For most hedgehogs once or twice a week for changing the liner I good, though babies tend to be more messy. When Archimedes was a baby it would be as often as every other day, between the poop and all the tiny quills and his messy eating. Now it's weekly. So, just go with what seems necessary. And congrats on the new baby!
