Cage Liner Washing Instructions

Washing and Drying

  • Give your liner an initial wash before using. This helps aid the wicking of the fleece.
  • Sweep/vacuum the loose hay and droppings daily.
  • Your liner will probably need washing once or twice a week depending on how messy your little ones are.
    • If you have 3 or more animals then washing may need to be done more regularly.
    • If you use pee pads or similar then this can extend the time between washing.
    • Make sure you shake/brush the loose materials off your liner before washing.
  • Machine wash your liner on a cool wash, 30/40C using a washing detergent that DOES NOT contain fabric softener. A little white wine vinegar can help eliminate odours.
  • We always RECOMMEND line/air drying liners. However, our liners, unlike others, can be tumble dried if necessary. Please ensure it is on a LOW HEAT SETTING.  Due to the materials we use they will dry quickly.

Extra Help

  • Do Not use fabric softener when washing your liners. This is because it leaves a residue on the fleece fibres stopping them from wicking moisture away as effectively
  • As mentioned above, we recommend giving your liner an initial wash though this is not essential. You will find the more the liner is washed the more effective the fleece becomes at wicking away any moisture. This is normal behaviour for the material and is a reason why it is so good to use in the cage.
  • When washing, if you give the liner a second spin/rinse you will find that it dries a lot quicker.
  • Make sure you don't use too much detergent as this will clog the fibres and stop the liner working as effectively. This will lead to bad odours.
