Firstly, there's no need to clean them that often? Even if in a very small cage, it's a bit much, as they tend to scent mark and make it dirtier as they never have chance to 'claim' the cage as theirs before their smells are cleaned away if that makes sense. We usually clean every week to ten days, with spot wipes on the shelves that need it most during that time.

Some does can get like this though - even the sweetest does can sometimes change their character - and it can be very disconcerting. On the times I've had them like this, I just leave them to themselves for the most part because they obviously don't want bothering. In your case though, I would just grab them and force handling.
