As some of the world’s most popular companions, cats are known to be extremely self-driven (Hoboken) in maintaining their hygiene. They are fastidious groomers who are very proud of their neat and clean appearance, without any prompting by their busy and time-poor humans. Every cat owner knows cats can be quite finicky, so most cat householders will have difficulty teaching their pets to use the toilet instead of the litter box that happily caters to their precise littering needs.
Cat litter has been designed to work ideally with your cat’s habits, interests, and personal preferences. Most importantly, cat litter must constantly be fresh and clean for a healthy and happy cat owner. So how do you get rid of cat litter smell?
One of the most effective ways to mask the smell of cat litter is to add an odour-neutralizing product to the container every time you scoop out the box. Among the odour-busting products you can use are: baking soda, activated charcoal, and carbon filters. You can mix these products with the existing cat litter or you can buy special cat litter for odour absorption.
While there are a multitude of commercial products that work well to eliminate the strong and unpleasant odours caused by cat litter, you can also effectively use the natural ingredients that are present in your kitchen or bathroom. Some of these natural ingredients include: charcoal, essential oils, and baking soda.
The cat litter disposal system is where the odour-neutralizing products help the most. By using scented or unscented cat litter at a welcoming pH level, you are sure to produce the best masking effects. But you must also keep the litter box clean and odour-free. With a litter box that is full of litter, the smell can sometimes become overwhelming. Always make sure to scoop or change the litter box every day, especially if it has been used daily. While this is way above the average schedule, it’s best to avoid creating excess waste and to keep the box free of odour. This can also reduce the chance your cat will re-soil the box.
Even if you change the litter box daily, your cat will still smell the odour of the old litter. By thoroughly scooping out the litter box, you are removing most of the litter particles that are filled with odour, dust particles, and waste. By using a special scooper that is designed for the litter box, you can remove these particles effectively while preserving the box’s litter. This way, the cat won’t be able to smell the box’s lingering odour.
Give your premises a refreshing smell by removing the litter box odour. Follow the above methods and ensure that your home smells good all the time.
