7 Ways to Eliminating Litter Box SmellTips eliminating litter box smell, 7 ways to cut cat box odor #Cat, #cats, #PetTips, #LitterBox, #Pets

Our family has two cats, I LOVE my family and they all LOVE the cats, while I just “like” the cats. Since I love my family I allow these “fur balls” to live in my home.  Don’t get me wrong I am nice to them, and think they are cute and would never allow any harm to come to them.  I do however have a real issue with their hair, and the cat box being in my home.  I seem to be the only one that “smells” the litter box and I am totally paranoid that my house will smell like cats. Recently I came up with 7 Ways to Eliminating Litter Box Smell.

 

Here are  7 Ways to Eliminating Litter Box Smell:

1) The brand of cat litter you choose can make a world of difference.  They come in all different varieties, I have found I HATE the scented ones.  They are made to help “hide” the odor but I find I then just associate the smell  of the scented litter to a messy box even if it is clean.  So I personally prefer a scent free litter.  Plus my Mom’s vet told her that  the scented litter was causing her cat to have UTI’s (urinary tract infections) so a scent free litter might just be healthier for your cat too.

2) The brand of cat food you choose affects the smell of their urine and poop.  My husband loves to spoil his cats and buy them wet canned food, the cats LOVE it but oh my word…. it is like they pigged out at an all you can get restaurant.  As soon as the cat goes poop you can smell it throughout the whole house (yuck).   So I had to put a limit to how often the cats get wet food, due to the smell.  I also noticed that different brands of dry food make a HUGE difference in the  smell of the cats urine.  Some of them make the cats urine very STRONG…. I personally really like the Friskies brand dry food.  The cats like it, price is middle of the road and it seems to help the cats have a “mild” urine odor.

3) Scoop the box daily, or even twice a day.  As much as my kids think I am nuts, scooping the box OFTEN is huge to keeping odor down and keeping a fresh smelling box.

4) Use a box liner, we use a heavy duty black garbage bag to line the litter box.  This makes for easy changing of the litter box and also helps keep the box itself more fresh. The box is plastic and will absorb smells… so even with a liner I suggest to get a whole new box once a year.

5) Baking soda, can help cut down on odors.  I like to sprinkle it on top after scooping the box.

6) Change the litter at least once a week, with two cats at least twice a week.  Yes this is on top of scooping daily.  I know some people will put a lot of litter in and only change it every few weeks.  But I prefer to use less litter (about 2-3 inches deep) and change it more often.

7) Put the box in a well vented area.  An ideal room is one with a vent fan and a window that you can open to the outdoor.  Fresh air is your friend when…. after all most of us want a well vented bathroom.  Having your cats “bathroom” in a well vented area is ideal as well.

Bonus tip: to get the cat hair off the furniture I really like the Pledge Fabric Sweeper for Pet Hair, Empty and Reuse.
