Are you having trouble with tending to your cat litter? Here are some amazing cat litter hacks you should know and try.
Dried Green Tea Leaves
Having trouble with the intense smell of your cat’s wastes? Try sprinkling in some dried green tea leaves. Green tea leaves are great organic and natural deodorizers that you can try. Simply get a bag of dried leaves and then sprinkle them into the cat’s litter. The reason why it is going to be effective is because of the natural anti-bacterial properties that it possesses. They are also capable of absorbing odor. The only issue is the prospect of caffeine that might harm your cat. You can brew the leaves as tea and then dry them out just to be on the safe side. At least you can get more use out of your steeped leaves. You get tea and a less-smelly litter.
This is another excellent and cheap deodorizer. Simply sprinkle this at the bottom of the cat litter box. This will then absorb all the excess odor. The only issue is this might be harmful to your cat if consumed in large amounts. That is why you should add the baking soda layer at the bottom. Keep it at a minimal amount so that your cat won’t accidentally ingest this.
Clean It Daily
This is probably a no-brainer already but you must make an effort to clean the litter box at least once a day each day. We know it is not an enjoyable activity because you will be super close to your cat’s waste. It may seem smelly and gross but it is definitely a must. You need to clean it daily because it is more sanitary for your cat and you can bet everything that it will make him happy. You also ensure that old poop won’t pile up and result in a very smelly concoction.
Yes, there are such things as box liners for cat litter boxes. This is perfect for people who aren’t huge fans of cleaning out the litter boxes. These liners add an inner layer to the box so that you can effortlessly pack up the used litter and then throw it away. This liner also prevents the litter from sticking to the box which lessens the smell. The only issue is that this tends to waste your litter because you cannot sift through it and just leave behind the unused particles. Liners are also a bit expensive and you can expect the price to rack up over time. This is okay if you have the luxury to avail it and if you really cannot bear to clean out the litter by scooping up the clumped materials one by one. The material of the liner is usually made of plastic that is resistant to tearing. They are also heavy-duty.
