Default Hamster peeing in his cardboard house

Hello everyone

I've made a house out of cardboard for my cute hamster, but after a thorough examination, I realized that he pees in there (while he also sleeps there). The cardboard under the place where he pays has started to wear down and since purely removing the peed bedding won't prove sufficient, is there anything else I can do to thoroughly clean it?

Cardboard is basically made of paper so you really can't "clean" it. Once the urine dries the smell just becomes a part of it. You'll have to either throw out the house or cut the bottom off.

You could put a plastic corner toilet in the spot where he pees with sand or substrate in it. Put a little peed on substrate in it too. Makes cleaning easier when they pee in a toilet but you'll have to replace the house with another if its wet and smelly. Once/if he pees in the toilet it will keep the house dry and make spot cleaning easy.
