Litter Box Hack
Recycle your plastic kitty litter containers and have a little less wasted litter when you scoop. I have a supply I keep for many uses....watering plants, storing cleaning supplies. I decided to experiment with an idea I had- a sort of sifter for when I scoop SweetPea's litter box.
This isn't rocket science but it recycles an old container and actually does make the scooping process a little neater.
Ask your kitty permission to use his old litter container😽
Supplies: some kind of marker, scissors, box cutter or anything you have to cut plastic
Draw a reference area to cut away the area around the spout and below.
Cut away and remove that portion. It should be large enough to accommodate the size of your scooper.
I would suggest using an awl or a drill but I'm temporarily without either! Make several holes in the bottom to allow the clean litter to sift out.
I found I could set it right in the litter box and scoop the litter directly into the sifter. After filling it with SweetPea's deposits(!), I sifted away!
I was pleased that the fresh litter went into the litter box while sifting (instead of on the floor where it usually ends up) and I could then easily dump the waste into a trash bag.
Voila! A clean litter box, a clean floor. Like I said, it's not rocket science but if I can sweep and vacuum a little less at the end of the day, I'll take it😊
