We've only had Guinea Pigs in the home since May 1, and we've tried other beddings including non-clumping kitty litter made from recycled newspapers. We very quickly realized that in addition to the cost, which was quickly adding up, it was also very very dusty, smelly and impossible to spot-clean.
Since getting the Flippers, the GP's are happier (they run and jump around a LOT more), there's no more dust issues, I clean out the jelly beans (as my daughter calls them) twice a day by simply sweeping them off, flip them every other day and throw them in the wash. They'll pay themselves back in NO time! I bought a set of 6 even though our C&C cage takes 3, enabling me to have a set in the cage as the first set is being washed.
These are great and I highly recommend them!
These are perfect! I have a 2x5 with a kitchen so I got 2 sets of 4 (one set is skulls and one set is sharks) they both look adorable and work soooo well! Guinea Pigs are a lot of work and this system makes it sooooo much easier and sanitary for both pigs and owner! The customer service is phenomenal! They are incredibly helpful! Thanks for a superb product and customer service!
I really love these Fleece Flippers. It makes cleaning the cage so easy. I also have noticed that there is not the odor like I had using paper or Care Fresh. I have 2 sets in different fabrics so I always have a set ready to swap out and I can change the look of the cage.
Love these flippers. I had finally caved in to my daughter's repeated requests to get a C&C cage for our 3 piggies - when she said that's all she wanted for her 14th birthday, I figured she really wanted it. We held off on ordering flippers, figuring we'd try folding fleece over blankets in an approximation of flippers. What a headache - the vacuum invariably sucked sections of fleece up and it was very messy-looking. We ordered a set of these, along with a large balcony set. Pricey but worth it. Very well made. Also the customer service made me feel like I was ordering from a friend.
I have four guinea pigs in two C&C cages. I have been using Fleece Flippers as bedding for the past two or three months. Before that I used a combination of towels and Carefresh in litter boxes. The Fleece Flippers work much better. They stay fresher and are easier to switch out, sweep off, and launder than towels. Also, the piggies can't chew them or snag their nails on them like they do with towels. They don't get dust and litter on my floors like Carefresh and they will ultimately cost less.
I tidy my cages once daily by sweeping out the poos, hay, and hair. I have two complete sets of Flippers for each cage so I can switch the potty area Flippers whenever they are dirty. I determine when they need to be switched by smell and wetness. I usually switch out an average of two Flippers per day between both cages. I launder the Flippers as instructed, using vinegar and unscented detergent. I will say that I have to be careful not to get coroplast cuts when reassembling the Flippers, but once I got used to being careful, assembly is fairly simple. I spend about 20-30 minutes cleaning up my two cages daily (including time spent changing water and feeding hay and pellets). I do a load of Flipper laundry every three days.
In the summer the Flippers soiled more quickly due to higher humidity and heat (even with air conditioning). Now that the weather is cooler and the air drier, they stay fresh longer.
Guests often compliment me on the look of my cages and the lack of smell. My whole family enjoys watching our piggies as they live comfortably on the soft Flippers. They are a great bedding choice for anyone who enjoys spending time with their piggies daily and provide them with a healthy, clean living space.
