my chinchilla smells!

Is there something I can put on my chinchilla to make him smell better?! I clean his cage at least once a week, but recently I've been cleaning it twice a week. I give him dust baths daily, but he likes rolling in his used bedding, and it makes him smell really bad! Is there something I can do to get rid of the smell?

You must be kidding with the whole "putting something on him"...?

Other than that, if he smells just by running around ind his one week old bedding, you should think of finding a vet. A chinchilla should not smell.
The pee is near odorless, and the poo doesn't smell at all.
What do you use as bedding?

I use aspen bedding. And I continually clean out the "dirty" parts of his cage daily. He has been to the vet but the vet said he is fine.

If you can, try getting hemp bedding. It should smell less
