Unhappy Sofie does not like clean house

Its been 3 weeks since I cleaned her bin cage.It was real smelly, poos all over.I got her out and put her in play area with the stuff from her bin. I washed the saucer wheel, and long tubes. Got a grassy green care fresh, left 1/4 of the old bedding, mixed it all together.
When I put her back in she just ran around , went in her hide, went through all the tubes, ran on saucer wheel crawled over all the rocks. She did this for 25 minutes straight. Keep jumping on the sides trying to get out.
Now she is settled in her tubes. What makes them go so nutty?

Haha! They like their own smell and get busy scenting it all again is my guess.

One of mine doesn't like it either, I find if I do a bedding change first then a week later clean her toys then she doesn't have much of a tantrum.

Mine stopped peeing in their wheels as much when I gave them a big sand bath, now they pee their which can be sifted out regularly. Bit easier.

I found part cleaning the cage helped, sometimes when the cage is smelly we as owners over clean with strong disinfectant. I just use unscented soap and warm water.
