Clean up is a cinch; just machine wash like your other laundry.

#1) Yes, they are water proof. So nothing UNDER them gets wet/soiled. However that puppy pee is staying right there so my puppies are getting very dirty and stinky. It is great with pups 2.5 weeks and younger but if you want to use it for a little older pups like up to 4 weeks, you will be needing to change it at least twice a day. Older than 4 weeks is not a good idea. I like it for the newborns and young pups because mom doesn't bunch it up like she does a blanket. I am a breeder and some of my mamas can't leave a blanket flat. They have to bunch it up and I am really afraid of pups getting stuck in the blanket and her laying on them. So this product is perfect for that. They are content to let it be. I have used this product for 5 litters now so I do have some experience with it.
#2) The size. I bought the raised garden bed for a whelping box. The measurements on it are 48" by 48". This mat is 48" by 100". The smaller size is 48" by 50". Buying the bigger one and cutting it in half is a money saver. But the 48" is the exact size as the the whelping box. So the 50" size tucks under the whelping box nicely but the 48" inch side does not. That's a little frustrating. It would be perfect if it was 50" wide by 100" long or the smaller size to be 50" x 50". I can deal with it but that is the reason I am giving the 4 star. This should have been thought of in manufacturing.
Finally I'll mention that it does get a little "fuzzy" with each wash. Most can be pulled off so it isn't a big deal to me. It does wash nicely and is easy on my washing machine.
Overall I am pleased with the product. I use it as is until pups are 2.5 weeks of starting to walk. I do like to put area rugs under anything I use for cushion and comfort. So this mat protects anything under it. When the pups get older and the pee is making them sticky and stinky. I put a blanket on top of the mat. So the pee goes through the blanket and the mat still keeps the area rug under it clean and protected. The blankets are easy to change and wash.
Yes I will buy again. Wish they would change the size and there was a bit of a learning curve. Hopefully less now for anyone else.

I was also hoping that this would be good for little puppies to walk on, but it's not, they slide all over and can't grip to stand at all, I threw this out after just 2 weeks.
