Anyone have any recommendations? I most likely have it narrowed down to either the GuineaDad fleece or the Small Pets and Company fleece. Anyone have experience with either? https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B06WVN696L/ref=cm_cr_arp_mb_bdcrb_top?ie=UTF8

I never used anything but cheap fleece blankets or pieces of fleece from a fabric store.
If you are on linoleum, I would think a blanket would do the trick. Or a beach towel. You can get a huge blanket on amazon for like $20. (or a bunch of small fleeces at Walmart for $4 each).

I love their hay, but that's pretty steep for bedding. I was trying to compare it to the Kaytee "comfort" bedding that I currently buy, but my tired brain is not able to figure out if they cover the same amount of space.
Kaytee also makes a 'natural' version of their bleached bedding, but the texture is completely different. I use the 'natural' stuff for our hamster and actually like it better than the bleached product, but it's pricier and the white bedding makes it easier to see if anybody is peeing blood (one of ours in particular is prone to UTIs).
I have a separate hand-held vacuum to clean up poop. About every 5 or 6 days I comb up all the hay that's been tossed out of the kitchen area, vacuum any leftover poop, take the fleece outside and shake it out to get as much hair out as possible. I put the towels and fleece in my front-load washer that has a pre-wash setting. That gets the worst of the pee out before the "real" wash cycle. I run a long wash cycle with warm water. For some reason, hot water seemed to result in residual pee smell. Sometimes I bleach, sometimes I use borax, always use vinegar in the rinse water. As I say, it's taken a while to come up with a system that works well for me.
