HOW TO WICK YOUR FLEECE

All fleece pee pads must be wicked before being placed inside of your piggies' cage.

What is wicking? Wicking is the process of making fabric absorbant to water and pee so that either does not sit on top of the surface.

Why is this important? This is important for your piggies health as it creates a dry environment so they are not sitting in their pee. It will keep their fur and feet dry.

How do I do it? To wick you fleece, place your items in a washing machine. Use free n' clear detergent (amount will vary on how much you are washing), a cup of white vinegar and few squirts of dawn dish soap (the one with the duck on it.) Once done, move your items to the dryer and dry on a low/medium heat cycle.

How do I know if my fleece is wicked? Get a small amount of water and pour it on top of your item. If the water disappears in less than 3 seconds you've done it correctly! If the water still pools at the top, go through the wicking process one more time or until it fully wicks.

Pig Mat Liners

Pig Mat Liners should be washed at least once or twice a week. We suggest placing your absorbent mat or any absorbent layer underneath the liner to ensure moisture is properly wicked away from the surface.

To properly wash your pig mat liner, place it into your washing machine by itself or with other small items. *Be sure to NOT wash multiple liners at a time, as when wet, these liners get very heavy and could break your washer.* Run your washer on a delicate cycle using free and clear detergent with no fabric softener. Allow to air dry to ensure that your liner stays of good quality.

If you find your pig mat liner has an odor after your pigs have used them, you can add a cup of white distilled vinegar when washing them to remove the smell.

Absorbent Mats

Absorbent Mats should be washed at least once or twice a week. We suggest placing your absorbent mats underneath fleece to maximize its usage, but they can also be used on their own.

To properly wash your absorbent mat, place it into your washing machine and run on a normal cycle with cold/warm water to preserve the quality of the mat. Make sure to use free n' clear detergent with no fabric softener.

If you find your absorbent mats have an odor on them from your pigs, you can add a cup of white distilled vinegar when washing them to better remove the smell.

Let air dry for best result or no heat setting in dryer.

*Don't wash too many absorbent mats in one load, as they can get heavy in the washer from being saturated with water and we don't want your washer to break*

Piggy Bunk Beds

If your piggy bunk bed starts to collect pee and poop, spray with 50/50 white vinegar & water solution and wipe off with a paper towel. Make sure to clean the entire bed including the underside of the bottom bunk and legs.

Bunk bed should be sanitized with every full cage clean.

Squish Tunnels & Bubble Tunnels

Squish tunnels are made of 1 inch high density foam which provides major support, but it is still important to take care of your handmade items. When washing your squish tunnel, we suggest placing it inside of your washing machine with other delicate items such as cozy caves, pee pads, etc. Do not wash squish tunnels with heavy items such as fleece liners as this runs the risk of distorting the shape of your tunnel.

Wash with free n' clear detergent on a delicate cycle with cold/warm water. Let air dry for best result or no/low heat setting in dryer.

Cozy Caves

Cozy Caves are made of 1 inch high density foam which provides major support, but it is still important to take care of your handmade items.

Pee Pads

We can imagine your pee pads are well loved and your pigs do a fair amount of business on them so it's important you clean them often. We suggest washing them at least once a week or with every full cage clean.

Pee Pads can be washed with other items such as fleece liners, squish tunnels, other pee pads, etc. Select a delicate/normal cycle on your washer and use free n' clear detergent. If you find your pee pads smell more than usual, you can add in a cup of white distilled vinegar to better remove the smell.

Dry on a normal setting in your dryer with no/low heat.

Piggy Pockets

It's promised that your pigs will do a fair amount of sleeping in their piggy pockets so it's important to keep them clean.

Piggy pockets should be emptied daily to clear poops and be felt on the inside to make sure they are not wet. If they are, wash on a gentle cycle alone or with other delicate items with free and clear detergent.

Air dry to keep your piggy pocket in it's best condition.
