Usage with Rat cages
I've recently found somewhat of a trend of people using these liners for rat cages, but I hardly ever see reviews for use with rats (for obvious reasons, lol), so here I am reviewing it for other rat-owners.
This stuff is awesome!
I cut it (using really strong/sharp scissors) to fit the flooring of my cage and it's pretty much perfect. It absorbs urine pretty well, and if you've litter trained your rats, you're pretty much golden. My rats don't chew on it, but they do have a habit of trying to pull it up or running around underneath it -- I'm planning on solving that by attaching some velcro.
As for clean up, you can easily take it out and hose it off outside and lay it flat/hang it to dry. I bought an extra liner so that when I do clean it, I can put in the other line and switch it out as needed.
There is a significant decrease in smell and need to change/clean the cage often. If the food you feed your rats is crumb-y or your rats are just messy eaters it may get dirtier faster, but like I said before it's really easy to clean.
In the long run, this is probably going to be more cost-effective than fleece or bedding, so I'd definitely recommend, especially from Amazon since the prices here are much better than in pet stores.

Marriage Saving Odor Control
By Lady Amazonian
Okay, so, what happened was, one day my husband wanted a lizard... two weeks later we had four.
All of them are rescued bearded dragons, and two of the three came to out homes in sand filled terrariums. The first morning we woke up the to smell of baking poop sand was enough to make me want to burn down my house.
Luckily, this carpet exists. I use it in all the terrariums and couldn't be happier. They are so super easy to clean too, so there is is literally never any poop left over. What i usually do is to pick up by rolling it up and taking it outside, quickly spray off with the hose, shake it out, and hang it on the fence to dry. The dragons are very pleased too, i don't think they miss the sand at all.
One issue I've heard is potentially a problem with reptile carpet is that it can snag on their nails. I don't have an issue with this however, as my dragons claws are rubbed down my constant scurrying ans scrabbling over concrete slabs and various branches. Though i will say, my sister's dragon has wicked claws that are like obnoxiously painful, and her's has never had an issue with snagging, so perhaps its just a myth.
I will continue to buy these, probably in other colors because its nice to change up the look of the dragon homes.

Safe substrate option for your reptile!
By Nathan Lugo
After trying many types of substrate for our bearded dragon, we finally settled on these substrate mats. They work great for covering the bottom of the cage and they are pleasing to the eye. When they get soiled, we swap them out (bought two) and wash with warm water and soap. Then we set the rug out to dry in the sun. This is a great safe option for your bearded dragon because there are no particles that could be eaten and they look good in the cage. Would highly recommend!
