While I love my sweet (and sometimes naughty) kitties, there are days that I just want to throw their litter box right out of the house. I’m sure that any cat owner can relate to the constant maintenance required and the difficulty in trying to keep it clean. Luckily, there’s a natural cleaner to help ensure the box is kept “fresh” during routine litter changes.
All you need to make the cleaner is water, white vinegar, and a lemon. After you have disposed of any old litter, mix three parts water with one part vinegar in a spray bottle. Squeeze one or two tablespoons of juice from the lemon and add it to the spray bottle. Shake up your new homemade cleaner and then spray the bottom and sides of the box as necessary.
Use a stiff bristle brush to scrub and remove anything icky from the litter box, then give the whole thing a good rinse. Make sure to let the box dry thoroughly before pouring in your new litter. This should help to keep the box cleaner and fresh-smelling for a longer period of time.
And dog-owners don’t worry, I will be having a canine-friendly post for you later this week. :)
