I have been a glider owner since January 2007. I have two cages. I have tried wood shavings, squares of felt, and nothing at all.
NOTHING AT ALL is my favorite. Just let it fall through the grate onto the tray and wipe the tray every morning with water and a paper towel.
On Saturday I wipe with baking soda and water, scrub with a green scrubbie, and thoroughly rinse in my shower.
It takes only a couple of minutes each morning to wipe them out, and then maybe five minutes to thoroughly wash them in the shower on Saturday, and I am the happiest I have ever been "taking care of business" by using this method.

I currently use newspaper, the former owners said she tried puppy pads but the girls just reached down through bars and pulled it apart, so ended up using nothing, just cleaned it daily. I decided test newspaper, I like the idea of recycling the newspaper over using paper towels. The girls do not come into contact with the paper and don't reach down for anything, the paper stays intact. If I ever find it becomes an issue, or maybe just anyway in the future I may get some fleece and cut a few down to fit bottom of pan. I change the paper out weekly and wipe down tray now, so I figure with the fleece liner I could do the same, but would like to have an extra 1 or 2 liners on hand. My only concern is the girls like fleece, so they may try to pull it up, even though they don't bother with the paper.

I don't use anything. I wipe there cages down every morning. I didn't know if we could use anything so I didn't. I don't mind the quick sweep and the quick wipe down every morning. Gives me extra time with my babies. :)

I use puppy pads, they're so easy! I just wrap them around the wire at the bottom of the cage.
My glider does like closeness so he always crawls under them to nap.
For when he does this I put paper towels at the very bottom (in the pull-out part).
