Question: Why is Kritter’s Crumble wet when you open a bag?
Answer: The moisture content is optimal for fitting more volume of the product in a Smartbag, so you get more out of one bag. The product dries over time when spread out at the bottom of the enclosure, or the process can be sped up by flicking on the heating lights directly onto the bedding. Remember you can dry and wet Kritter’s Crumble according to your own pet’s needs, and can be re-wetted even after it fully dries out.

Answer: Spot clean regularly. It is really up to individual users when to decide to replace the whole bedding. Check the facts sheet section for your particular animal to find out how often.
