When it comes to kitty litter, one of the more unfortunate tasks you’ll have to deal with, is deodorizing it. Sometimes, if left unmanaged, a cat litter box can smell quite offensive. So, you’ll probably want to deal with the smell, in a quick and inexpensive way. This article will present a few tips, that will help you make a “DIY Cat Litter Deodorizer”.

Making A Deodorizer
Simply shake some baking soda on the bottom of the litter box, before you pour in the cat litter. The baking soda doesn’t have to be expensive, you can use whatever you can afford or find in the cupboard.

The Reason Baking Soda Works
Baking Soda soaks up the smell and keeps the litter dry—as opposed to just masking the smell. 

Why is baking soda a good deodorizer?

  • Cheap
  • Soaks up moisture and smell
  • Non-toxic 
  • Good for the environment
  • Odorless  

Natural Kitty Litter
When it comes to managing the cat litter smell, natural cat litters are an ideal choice. Clay litters are dusty or don’t soak up the smell well. Also, litters that clump can be pricey and bad for the environment. Natural cat litter is an option that helps to avoid these issues. Natural cat litters that are made from biodegradable materials—like pine—are readily available at local pet stores or online.

Consider Pine Litter
Pine litter is naturally effective at absorbing smells and considered to be much better than most unnatural cat litters. The pine smells nice and spreads over cat urine effectively. It’s also easier to clean-up. Just pour the contents of the litter box in a trash bag, then throw it in a trash can. After a few litter dumps, rinse the litter box clean and allow it to dry. Then pour more natural pine litter in the box.

In conclusion
Although cat litter can have an odor that is quite pungent, there are ways to neutralize the odor. Using baking soda or natural cat litters can effectively deodorize your cat’s litter, while sparing your pockets and the environment. Thanks for reading “DIY Cat Litter Deodorizer”.
