Litter Box Cleaning Tips
Litter box cleaning is the dirtiest job in cat care—no competition. Try these helpful tips to take the dread out of cleaning the litter box, so you can enjoy life—and your cat—more!
Litter Box Cleaning Tips
1. Choose the Right Litter.
We can’t say it enough: the right litter makes all the difference. Most cat litter is made from clay, which sticks to the sides and bottom of the litter box when it gets soiled. You have to chisel and scrape to remove waste—and it still leaves behind a sludgy mess in the box. World’s Best Cat Litter™ harnesses the concentrated power of naturally absorbent corn for a quick clumping, easy scooping solution that keeps surrounding litter clean and dry—so you can scoop once and get on with your day.
2. Use the Right Amount of Litter.
Clay cat litter requires lots and lots of litter in the box to contain waste. Too much litter can actually make it harder for your cat to use the litter box, as most cats don’t feel stable digging in deep litter. Plus, you have more to sift through and it’s all too easy to miss a few spots. Because World’s Best Cat Litter™ clumps more effectively, you can use less, making life easier on you and your cat.
3. Location, Location, Location.
We get it. It’s tempting to hide the litter box in the deepest, darkest corner of the basement—but ignoring the problem will only make it worse. If the litter box is hard to get to, your cat is less likely to use it, and you’re less likely the scoop regularly. Instead, choose a litter like World’s Best Cat Litter™, which offers outstanding odor control by trapping litter box smells deep inside super-absorbent granules. You’ll be able to put the litter box in the most convenient place for you and your cat, without worrying about that “litter box smell.”
4. Flush the Mess.
With clay cat litter, you have two choices: make a trip outside every time you scoop, or dump it in the indoor trash and hope it doesn’t smell (too much). Because World’s Best Cat Litter™ is made from corn, not clay, it is proven flushable* and septic safe—so you can just scoop and flush without worrying about clogging the pipes.
5. Start From Scratch.
No matter how diligent you are about scooping, you will have to empty and clean the litter box every now and then. Because clay litter sticks to the box, most cat parents find they need to completely change the litter at least once a week. World’s Best Cat Litter™ clumps more effectively, so the box stays clean when you scoop. Many World’s Best Cat Litter™ fans report that they have to empty and clean the box much less often—typically once or twice a month, depending on litter box usage. When it is time for a complete clean, just dispose of the remaining litter and give the box a good scrubbing with a mild, unscented soap. Rinse, dry, refill, and you’re back in business.
Litter box cleaning will probably never become the highlight of your day, but it doesn’t have to ruin your day, either. World’s Best Cat Litter™ delivers the concentrated power of corn for easier litter box cleanup with less litter, so you can scoop, flush, and go.
