I never write reviews of anything. I think this is my first review ever. The fleece flippers are amazing. I have a 2x3.5 cage. On one end, I have a "kitchen" which is about 13" wide. I use CareFresh (with pooch pads as a liner) in the kitchen. I have fleece flippers in the rest of the cage. You know the video of the fleece flippers where the guy sweeps the poos up? It works exactly like that. My piggy does a lot of her business (especially pee) in the kitchen. But she poos plenty in the main cage. Every day I sweep up the poos. It takes, oh, all of 2 minutes. The fleece seems to absorb any surface moisture of the poos, so they are dry on the outside. They last forever before they need to be washed. I am sure it would be different if my piggy peed on them, but since she pees in the kitchen, the flippers don't seem to ever get stinky. I flip them after a while, and eventually wash them, but only because I feel like I should, not because they are dirty or smelly. These are way better than I expected them to be.
It can be a little tricky to get the uhaul layers and the fleece around the coroplast, but I am sure that practice will help. And they do not quite lie flat because of the excess fleece and uhaul pad needs to be folded under, but I just fold it all under the same end of the coroplast so there is a little tiny slope to the floor for my piggy.
I spot clean the kitchen every other day (removing the CareFresh with pee and the poos) and top off the Care Fresh. I replace all of the CF and change out the pooch pads once or twice a week.
The whole setup is unbelievably easy to keep clean.
The flippers are great. Exact sizes. Just need to wash it at least twice in order for the fleece to absorb..
I was using disposable bedding in my 2 x 4 and it was pricey! I got this and it's great! I use 3 because the space for 1 is for the kitchen. Being you can flip and switch up dirty with the clean before they all need to be laundered saves on laundry time which is great since I have to walk outside to do laundry. I'm getting a couple of fleece cases in different colors to give her and I a change in view.
Awesome product and now I have a happy little piggy. Such a genius creation to have come up with! So easy to clean...nice to have found this product being a new Guinea mom :)! Only the best for my pets!
Fleece Flippers save me time and money and my guinea pigs love them. I don't blame them, would you rather sleep on carefresh or on a comfy fleece blanket? Fleece flippers are the way to go! I will never go back to carefresh.
