Hmm yeah I think Ill try doing that!

As for the behaviour making a racket digging & scratching in the house is not unusual for some hams or a sign of boredom its just what they do! Same often goes for scratching at the sides of a tank.
If you ham enjoys out of cage time I would try increasing that though.
Okay Ill see if I can try hamster-proofing my room so that she can roam around and interact with some toys until I can get my hands on a playpen. I agree she seemed pretty stressed when placed in the bathtub (its stressful for both of us actually lol) So I prefer putting her in a large bin cage when Im cage cleaning.

Yes I would say try taking her put more often too. In the bathtub or if you have a full room you could use that could be great. I take my syrian put every 2-3 night so she can be somewhere other than her cage.
