I am thinking about switching to fleece bedding because it seems to fit my standards. I need fleece that I can just wash every day and will not leak through and have a washable absorbent layer. Right now, I currently have store-bought bedding, which everyone knows is a hassle to keep up with so anyone have some advice for it? Thank you! :)

I would definitely recommend fleece for you and I think that it's much better than store bought bedding, personally. You'll save a lot of money on it as well. And you can theme your cage on the different designs of fleece. Depending on where you live I could recommend some stores for you. At the moment if you want to get some, try looking online, I would recommend Etsy, they have some great sellers.

I have a mixture in my guinea pigs set up. They have fleece under their beds for relaxing on and a hemp bedding in their hay trays. I also put newspaper under the hay trays which I change daily.

Hay trays are changed every couple of days and topped up twice a day. Fleece is shaken out each day and changed when wet. Fleece liners are fleece mattress protectors and fleece all sewn together.

Chill out zone with grids removed from front of cage for easy cleaning



Hay tray areas use newspaper instead of fleece these days.





Mats on top of fleece liners help the liners to last longer.

What are the things underneath the wood bunk beds in the first picture?

I’ve seen them before, but I don’t know what they are.
