“Ooh that smell, can’t you smell that smell?” No, I’m not quoting the lyrics to the song preformed by the southern rock band Lynyrd Skynrd – for those of you that remember the release back in 1977. No, I’m talking about that dreaded lingering, pungent odor of ammonia, that cat urine smell… that smell all us cat owners hope visitors won’t smell when they first walk into our home.
What Causes Cat Litter Odor?
Cat urine starts to smell like ammonia very quickly. Bacteria starts breaking urine down immediately, urine contains nitrates, which are the essential building blocks of ammonia. And the ammonia is what smells. What neutralizes ammonia? Baking Soda. Baking Soda’s deodorization power is a result of its ability to absorb and neutralize odor, rather than only covering it up. Included in my Out of Sight Litter Box cabinet package is a baking soda box holder that mounts (screws included) under the Top Lid, each time the Top Lid is opened, the baking soda is mixed. A baking soda box slides in and out easily for replacement. My Odor Absorber Holder can be use with any litter box cabinet. You will need to pick up a few boxes of “@rm and [email protected] firdg and frezor” baking soda boxes to use with the holder.
The Easiest Way Of Getting Rid Of Cat Litter Smell
The fact is, cat poop stinks! Most cats cover up, some “dump and run”. Nothing is going to get rid of that odor except by removing the source Keeping the litter box clean is essential, by removing litter urine clumps and of poop. My Out of Sight Litter Box is designed to be easy to clean. Just walk up, open the Top Lid, scoop, and walk away. A minute in the morning and a minute at night, and your cat and your nose will both be happy.
Natural And Effective Clean Up Remedies For Cat Urine
Clean up the “miss” with paper towels first, blot clean as much as possible. Then, use white vinegar. Mix 2 parts water, 2 parts white vinegar and clean the area well. Once you clean up the pee area, I have found a light spray over of Windex also helps freshen hard surfaces. For carpets or rugs another mix that works is: 1 cup hot cup water, 1/2 cup baking soda, 1/4 cup hydrogen peroxide and 3 tablespoons of Dawn Ultra dish detergent. Leave that mixture on the soiled carpet or rug area for about 10 minutes. Blot up and then clean with a damp towel, sprinkle baking soda over the area, and cover area with a towel over night and then vacuum.

* I use the word "stop(s)" to describe the difference (before to after) that my Out of Sight Litter Box will have on your litter tracking issues.
A legal definition might better be "will substantially reduce litter tacking by 98%". You may find a few pieces of rogue litter here or there, but you will notice such a substantial difference
that you too might use the word "Stopped" while telling your friends how the Out of Sight Litter Box changed your litter tracking issues.
