Guinea Pigs-Fleece or Bedding

Well I'm renovating my C&C cage and I'm trying to decide if I should try fleece. How much more/less work is it to keep clean? Does it have less or more odour? How often should it be washed and what should I put underneath it?
Thanks..looking for any advice..good or bad you can offer

I remember reading a discussion in another forum a few years ago about fleece for piggy cages, and the general consensus was that it is a good thing.

You put moving blankets under it to absorb urine also it needs swept out every other day and washed weekly. Fleece is much cheaper and no possibility of allergies or anything

is it smellier though than bedding once it's been a couple of days? I'd have to change the bedding every 3-4 days due to odour.

Fleece is absorbent and soft. It is reusable, but you will probably need to clean it on daily basis.
We like to set up the three-layered bedding: clean white paper, then shavings, then the hay. Our cavies seem to enjoy this setup the most
