    Ahhh that's lovely! I only changed over recently and realising how much this is all costing! When I use towels, they only last a day but the incontinence pad takes 3 litres and lasts 2 days - still a lot more washing and drying though, so that puts up the cost.

    The incontinence pads I use are disposable...they last a week, although I have extra ones in high pee areas as I want to change them mid week from now on. I change the fleece every week as well...but I'm not sure if that is the right solution.

    My girls also spend time in a playpen, and the puppy pads in there are changed every two days.

    I posted recently about getting a new cage for our 2 boars. We have made a version of the ikea hack for lack tables this weekend and I'm now after new bedding for them.

    I saw a post about wood pellet bedding and it lasting 3 weeks +. Where can I order this from in the UK? We currently use vetbed and have used fleece each with either newspapers or puppypads in the past but I would really like to cut down the amount of washing because we have rabbits too that have blankets that I need to wash and cut the costs down etc and I love the idea that it helps cut down the smell!
