You can even make carefresh. Cheaper, and if you're in my situation where you need 4 of the 15.00 bags to fill the cage, cheap is better LOL. I use aspen.... but since nowhere sells it anymore I have to save my budget AND keep my guineas clean and happy D:

I don't remember my male rat smelling too bad, but than again, after he killed our female rat, we were never able to hold him again.

How do I make carefresh? Tell me about how many bags we need! I have my 5 tanks for them, and each needing a minimum of 5-6 inches to dig, and changes! Yikes. Im between $80-$100 a month in bedding and their food! Not including my fish or hibernating turtles lol!

If you look on youtube, there are GREAT videos.

But simply, shred paper into strips, soak in warm or hot water, tear into tiny pieces... You can let dry or send it through the dryer (even the washer) in a pillow sack, but if you use the washer rather than a bucket you will need to drain the pillow case A LOT.

You'll want to pound on it... so a meat hammer, sludge hammer, a shoe, your foot, your fist whatever your preference You can use newspaper, flyers, computer paper, etc just make sure that it is non-toxic ink (most use...veggie oil base I think?) Trust me.... I pay 30.00 for my guineas, and that is food, hay, toys, and extras... I don't want it to be 130-200 for bedding! It's ridiculous LOL.

Just a few :) most are pretty much the same. I am going to make some tomorrow if I can. If you get tons of flyers and papers like I do, that is the BEST.Apparently you can also use food dye to make it colored... I probably won't.
