Guinea pigs really should not be bathed unless absolutely necessary. Most frequently in long-haired piggies, a "bum bath" may come in handy if their hair appears to be matted or messy. I know what it feels like to find so much conflicting information out there on the internet!
I will link TGPF guide for you below:
Bathing (including cleaning grease glands)

Bathing should only be done for medical needs, or a quick bum bath if they have a dirty bottom or grease gland
