For all the years of keeping rodents and cavy's I have never heard of this. Is there any reason or point to go to such extreme?
Even excessive bathing in water can dry their skin and should be on as needed basis.
My little mouse rather liked a short swim now and then, and cappy's almost need a pond being semi aquatic, but guinea pigs, I think that is a nope.

It depends on why the guinea pig needs it. For the purpose of an example, I will assume that the guinea pig needs it for an injured limb. If it were one of my dogs, I would put them in the tub. For something as small as a guinea pig, maybe try using the spray attachment on the sink? Like a mini showerhead.
