Kitchen roll vs shredded fleece

Post by Aalice » Tue Aug 31, 2021 3:32 pm

Hi! My boys reeeaally like to tear apart kitchen roll and use it as bedding but we are going through a LOT of towelling :lol:

I was considering buying some fleece and shredding it up for them to then use as their bedding as this will probably be more durable and maybe (?) reusable if I put them in wash bags and wash them

Any experience or advice welcome :hearts:

There's not much of a difference. I guess that depends on their preference and costs. Fleece is softer and cuter, so that's something I choose for my cuties :)

Fleece isn't absorpbant, so doesn't make good bedding.

If you're worried about costs, try shredding the paper packing that comes in delivery boxes.
