Like humans, cats don't want to go to a dirty toilet.

Which home remedy effectively cleans the cat litter box for me and my cat?

Cats are known for being very clean animals.

Unlike dogs, you don't have to put them on a leash and take them outside to do their business.

A garden is sufficient for outdoor cats or a litter box for indoor tigers.

But here too, the cat toilet must be cleaned and kept clean regularly, otherwise the cat will look for another place.

How often do you have to clean a litter box like this - and are there home remedies for it?

How often should you clean the litter box?

Cats are very concerned about their personal hygiene, they don't want bad smells or come into contact with their waste such as urine or feces.

Therefore, the little tigers bury their own waste products either in the garden or in the litter box.

In fact, the cat's well-being depends not only on food, water and play opportunities, but also on the cleanliness of its toilet.

The smell of the cat's droppings also depends on the food they eat - the best cat food may be able to help.

It is therefore particularly important to clean the litter box regularly.

After all, people don't want to go to a dirty toilet either.

Daily cleaning, in which feces, lumps and the like are sieved out and disposed of, is a first step.

This avoids the formation of odors and the cat does not have to come into contact with its own excrement.

A complete cleaning of the toilet, which involves replacing the litter and washing out the toilet, is recommended every week to every two weeks.

What home remedies can you use to clean the litter box?

A cat's sense of smell is very sensitive and cats are much more sensitive to smells than humans are.

If the cat doesn't like the smell of her toilet at all, she will look for another place to relieve herself.

Because you want to avoid this, it makes sense to avoid strong-smelling cleaning products with a lemon scent, for example.

There are cleaners available from specialist retailers that are odorless and use enzymes to reduce the smell of the cat toilet.

Tried-and-tested home remedies for cleaning the cat litter box also include dishwashing liquid with a neutral smell and vinegar.

The vinegar neutralizes the smell of urine and does not bother the cat.

In combination with warm water, the litter box can be cleaned in no time.

How do I clean the litter box?

When cleaning the litter box every day, it is always advisable to have a litter scoop with a grid structure on the blade and cat waste bags on hand.

You can hygienically and odor-proofly pack the cat's feces in a poop bag and store them in a cat litter bucket until the next trip to the garbage can.

During the weekly complete cleaning, the entire contents of the cat toilet should be poured into a garbage bag.

The tub is then rinsed with warm water and any encrusted residue is removed with a sponge.

There is nothing wrong with using a cleaning agent with a neutral scent or vinegar for cleaning.

Finally, the tub must dry out or be dried.

You should make sure that there are no remaining moisture residues before adding new litter.

What to do if the litter box stinks?

Despite how clean it is, it can still happen that the litter box gives off an unpleasant smell.

There are very practical tips to ensure that it still smells pleasant for owner and kitty.

As with humans, cat urine and feces generally do not smell pleasant, which is due to the food.

It is also important to consider whether wet or dry food is better for the cat.

In addition, each cat exudes its own individual scent.

Unpleasant smells can increase if clay granules are used as litter, as they do not bind scents as effectively.

But here too there is a remedy in the form of a home remedy: ordinary baking soda, which you sprinkle on the bottom of the cat litter box before adding the litter, binds and neutralizes the odors.

Some “odor stoppers” for cat toilets promise a comparable effect, but an additional disinfectant effect.

However, it is possible that a sensitive cat literally “cannot smell” these cleaning products and will boycott the toilet as a result.
