Hi! So I know that the sprayable air fresheners are not good for your hedgie, but I was wondering if I could use something like a Glade Plug-In (or a non spray one)? My room is starting to get kinda smelly :) !

I wouldn't risk it. I know I certainly wouldn't want to live with the smell from one of those plug ins and don't think a hedgehog with their sensitive noses would like it either. Cleaning the cage and wheel more frequently should solve the smell problem. Also, adults are usually less smelly than babies so the smell will lessen with age. There are small plug in air cleaners that don't put a smell into the air and help remove smells. Some even have special filters for pet odours. :)

I don't like the plug-ins either. I find that they're worse than the sprays, because it's constantly there, and the smell it too strong for me.

Have you tried something like Arm and Hammer Fridge-n-Freezer Odor Absorber?

It's like putting it in the fridge, but you can put it somewhere around the cage, and it doesn't have any smell.

That's what I use!! Works fairly well too. I just stick it to the inside of her cage near her wheel (high enough that she can't reach it). First day I put it in, she went over to sniff & investigate but hasn't bothered with it since. I think we both appreciate the cleaner smelling cage.

Thanks for everyone's help! I will try the odor remover and see if that helps! Right now, I change his liner every 4-5 days, but I'll see if that helps!

you might want to try changing liners ever 2-3 days...i think that is what most of us on the boards do currently
