Anyone who has a cat or has visited the house of someone that owns a cat knows what the “litter box smell” is. I have lived around indoor cats almost all of my life and I still can’t stand the smell of litter boxes. So we make sure to clean ours regularly to try and avoid the smell, but I know it is still there a little. I would burn candles, spray air freshener and many other things to try and mask the odor so that people would not smell it if they came to visit. It was frustrating when I would walk downstairs and smell the litter box. That is when we found Fresh Step® with the power of Febreze™. I no longer have to worry about going into our basement and having the smell of the litter box make me feel like we just drove up to the landfill. I am amazed at how well it eliminates the litter box odors (not just masking them) to keep our house smelling fresh and clean and not like the litter box. In fact, Fresh Step® with the power of Febreze™ has a 10-day odor control guarantee. The 10 days is great news for me since we only have one cat and I tend to clean his box once a week – I have noticed how much better our house smells because the product really does what it says it does.
So do you want to know how to eliminate the litter box smell in your house? Here are my tips:
- Use a great odor eliminating cat litter like Fresh Step® with the power of Febreze™
- Clean your cat box regularly adding some fresh litter each time to rejuvenate the odor eliminating “power”
- Get a litter box with a lid and put it in an out-of-the-way place (like ours is in our basement in the laundry room)
- Make sure your cat is only using the litter box (and not having accidents)
- Clean out the litter box and change the litter at least every two months
What do you do to help eliminate the litter box smell in your house?
Since we have had our cat for many years (going on 12 now) I can tell you that keeping your house free of the “pet smell” when you have indoor pets isn’t always easy. A quality litter makes all of the difference in the world. Not only does my cat notice but we do as well. Fresh Step® with the power of Febreze™ has a lower dust formula that leaves us with cleaner surfaces and clearer air, and it actually works to eliminate odors instead of just covering them up temporarily.
