Although I am widely known as a corgi person, I also am quite a cat person. I previously had cats for years, and I still enjoy my Mom’s two rambunctious Siamese cats. Of course, having cats does present some challenges. Like when they decide that your stuff really belongs to them to rearrange as they see fit. If you have ever been owned by a cat, I think you know just how common this is.
And then there is the matter of the litter box. A common concern among cat owners is controlling litter box odor. It is easy as a pet owner to become nose blind to pet odors, and the last thing you want is for guests in your house to be bothered by pet smells. Fortunately, there are some steps you can take to eliminate litter box odor.
How to Control Litter Box Odor
Controlling litter box odor can be done with a few easy steps. In particular, think about placement of the box, choosing the right products, and routine care of the box.
1) Think About Placement: While many will put the litter box in a hidden, remote area, which is great for getting it out of the way, the box should also be in a well ventilated area. A litter box kept in a small enclosed area will have less air circulation around it to help disperse odors. So, aim for the corner of a room over the inside of a closet. Also, to avoid accidents, make sure that your cat can always easily get to the box. Of course, you would not put the box in an area commonly used by the whole family either, as these cats recognize.
2) Use Fresh Step Total Control with the Power of Febreze: The litter that you use can make a big difference when it comes to odor control. For example, Fresh Step Total Control with the Power of Febreze has a lemongrass citrus scent for a fresher aroma. But it also completely controls odor. The product adds the odor controlling power of Febreze, which includes Borate Technology for superior ammonia control. It acts as a antimicrobial agent, which inhibits the growth of odor-causing bacteria. It can only be found at Sam’s Club where it comes is an easy to transport and easy to reseal 42 lb bag. It also has a money back guarantee! As a bonus, you can use it for odor control in other areas too, such as by making a sachet with it inside and placing it in your gym bag or locker. It works that well!
(3) Keep the pan clean: Plastic litter pans can easily absorb odors, so use plastic litter pan liners to help get the plastic clean. Liners also make clean up easy since all you have to do to change out litter is lift up the bag, tie it shut, and toss it. Wash the pan frequently, and be sure to scoop often. Fresh Step Total Control with the Power of Febreze is a fully clumping litter, so that makes scooping easy.
By keeping litter pan odor under control, you can feel confidant that your home is free from pet odor. Plus, your cat will be happy as well, which will help prevent your cat from refusing to use the box.

See how easy it is to control litter box odor? Now, as for controlling cats, that is a different story. That pen shown in the opening photo did indeed end up on the floor, and the cat took over the table, effectively ending our photo session. One thing is clear, you can totally control litter odor, but you can’t totally control cats!
