So with the $5 off coupon Carefresh mailed me, I bought a 12.5 liter bag of the Candy Corn colored paper bedding.  This is the first I've used Carefresh bedding in over a year ..... maybe two?  I've been using mostly Kaytee Clean & Cozy white.


  • First thing I noticed: Carefresh does not have that nice soft feel I've gotten used to from Kaytee.  It just feels chunkier and rougher texture. Not really a big deal, but noticeable all the same.

  • The next, and much more worrying thing I found while breaking up the clumps and spreading it around the tank:
    Carefresh Paper Bedding  20160928
    I found this fluffy, cotton candy looking stuff.  Just this bit in about half the bag.  I didn't look through the other half so there could be more. I checked the labeling again just to be sure I didn't miss the mention of added fluffy material but there isn't any that I can see.


So if you use Carefresh please be extra careful and check through it thoroughly to make sure there's none of this fluff. I'm not sure if it's the dangerous type of fluffy nesting stuff, but better safe than sorry.

Weird! From a super quick search I found paper pulp fluff stuff... So I guess that's probably not cotton, though I have no idea if that makes it safer. I wonder what happened to it. Razz

I figured it probably was just paper stuff that came out funky but didn't want to chance it so tossed that bit. The rest of that half of the bag looked fine. I did message the company about it so hopefully I'll hear back soon.

Odd, I've never noticed anything! Hopefully they'll have an answer for you!

They got back to me and very nicely explained what it was and offered to send a coupon for a free bag.   Very pleased with their customer service. Very Happy

That's wonderful customer service!! A thread on another forum said it looked like lint sort of stuff, too. Very interesting!

Another mouse forum?  Feel free to share their response with them too, if you like.  It's good to know it's just lint and also that they recommend removing it.
