Keeping Your Kitty’s Litter Clean

In order to thoroughly clean your cats litter box, here are some steps that you should take.

  1. Dumb all of the used litter into a garbage bag and toss it out immediately.
  2. When cleaning the box, use very hot  soapy water . Do not use harsh chemicals. I use dish washing liquid.  Scrub the box with old rags that you keep just for this purpose.
  3. After scrubbing , rinse the box very well with hot water to remove all traces of  soap.
  4. Fill the box with hot water and add a cup of bleach. (I don’t do this but make sure that box is washed with soap and water very well).
  5. Rinse the box again very well with hot water to remove the bleach.
  6. You can either air dry the box, or wipe it with a clean rag.
  7. Fill the box with clean litter. You may want to line to box with kitty liners, or a plastic bag. This will make clean up next time easier.
Change the box a least one a week and scoop every day. Your cat does not like a dirty box and neither will you. If you buy flushable litter and scoop all the time, you can do a thorough cleaning every two weeks or so.
