Kind regards!   :)

I wouldn't recommend any kind of product that produces an aroma. Are you having problems with odors? What kind of bedding are you using? How often is it being replaced?

Typically chinchilla owners use pine chips and replace them once every 10 days, more often in humid conditions. The cage should not have solid walls. Also try running a fan in the room to help with ventilation. Never blow fans through your pet's cage though.

Okey thank you! Saw it at the local pet store and thought it could be more hygienic.

I have no problems whatsoever with oders.
I use a fleace bedding that gets changed every two days.
Cage is normal bar cage.

Excellent. Sounds like you are taking really good care of your chin. Fleece works well too.
