I have a question for anyone who has used the custom cage liners that Jana makes. How often do you change them out? Weekly? Twice per week? Every other day?
I ordered two of them for my biggest cage, but I want some opinions on how often they should be changed.
I was thinking I would change them out every three days or so. I know washing them a lot will cause them to wear out faster, but I have a Leu and I really don't want him to get stained.
Thanks

I shake them out every couple days and wash them once a week.
I have 2 per cage so I have one ready at all times. They wash well. I only dry them for a few minutes alone then lay them flat.

I use them and I also only have two. How often I change them depends on how quick I wash the other one. blush I have two gliders, so they aren't too messy. I think every 2-3 days would be ok. Some people like to change theirs daily. I am sure it will depend on how stinky your cage is. Mine eat in a glider kitchen too, so there is no food mess in the bottom of the cage.

A little note on those liners...please follow the instructions and don't try to IRON them like I did...oops. shakehead There is now a hole in one of mine and I had a hard time getting all the melted stuff off my iron.

I shake them out every few days, flip them over, and wash once a week. They drip-dry in no time, so never have to go in the dryer. The black liners are thicker and stuff comes off more easily than the blue and fuchsia ones.

Thanks for all of the feedback on the cage liners. I ordered two of them so I could change them out. I usually wash all the gliders' laundry immediately after removing it from their cages, so two liners might be enough for now. I still need to order them for my other cages but wasn't sure how many I should order. I'll try a black one the next time I place an order.
I do use glider kitchens for all of my gliders. It really helps keep the mess under control.

Karen you will LOVE these liners!

All of my cages have one in the tray and one inside the cage for softer landings ~ although they think they are for playing hide and seek roflmao

I also do as above ~ shake them out every morning when I pick up and re-set toys, then they all go in the wash on the weekend. I do one small load of just liners so the fleece doesn't ball up all over them. I hang dry mine and I swear they are dry in like 15 minutes.

I have all black ones and order them a tad larger all the way around as they do shrink ~ even though I don't dry them. I noticed the black fading so I quite drying a long time ago.
