Using blankets as bedding

So ive been using aspen for the longest time now, but i noticed a lot of people use material like old blankets, wool, fleece and what not. But i was wondering, wouldnt they just pee/poo on the blanket? and if i wash it wouldnt all the pee just get all mixed up with all the other stuff? How would i wash it or do i just throw it away? also how often would i clean. I have about 400 US dollars so im gonna buy them ALLLLLL the stuff they want (hehe little spoiled piggies) like a Giant C&C cage possibly 2 stories Umm so to shorten it: what do i do with the blankets after i use them wash them or dump them? Also how do i get them more used to floor time they kinda just sit there shocked and do absolutely nothing


Thx

try litter training them. the base of my rats cage was full of care fresh, but when i started using the litter pan with care fresh inside and fleece around it they got the idea right away. its been like that for two whole weeks and still no accidents.

we just vacuum it every other day (have a dyson..don't know how it'd work with a bag vac..) then throw JUST Hagrid's fleece and under liner (crib liner) into its own wash every week. works great.
