I use one that is supposedly odor free but I still worry about it.

  • if you worry about it, get a trusted friend to come to your house. We are acclimated to our own home, but visitors are not. See what they have to say and go from there.

    Try a different brand, multicat litter is more effective in controlling odor. I buy Safeway brand in 40 lb box. It also depends on what your cat will use, LOL. You can also use one of those Frebreeze plug-ins nearbuy to control odor.

    We use a litter made from wheat called swheat scoop. We use it in a covered litter, with 2 cats and we only clean it weekly. It really keeps the smell down.

    Best solution, keep it in a cabinet or closed space! Failing that, I'd sprinkle baking soda in it too, and just keep up with cleaning it!
  • I always clean thoroughly the boxes once per month - dump the litter & scrub with bleach. Refill with fresh litter. Then I add baking soda to the box as needed - maybe 2x/wk. I also scoop the boxes 2x/day. Always get the soiled litter out of your house immediately. If you are fastidious there won't be too much odor. Good luck. A fresh nose will also tell you if you're nose-blind. And your furry friends will be happy 2.

    Clean your litter box more often that will help control the smell. Also some cats don't bury their poop. That also leads to smell.

    I always mix baking soda in my litter pan. It is cheaper than the litter and add the baking soda. the large box it goes a long way. I also scoop litter at least once a day mostly twice. my cats will not use a dirty box.

    Have you tried the new Arm & Hammer SLIDE cat litter. It is fantastic and doesn't stick to the litter pan. Reasonably priced.
