How to Keep a House Smelling Fresh When You Have Indoor Cats


Sometimes, when you have indoor cats, it can get a bit smelly. In many cases, the culprit is the litter box. Constant upkeep of the litter box is needed in order to solve that problem. Other causes may play a role in the bad smells that are plaguing your home. For example, male cats marking their territory leave a very musty, unpleasant smell. Simple steps can be taken to refresh your home and keep it smelling good.

Things You'll Need

  • Disinfectant cleaner
  • Scented litter
  • Deodorizing Spray
  • Odor eliminating candles
  • Keep your cat's litter box clean. Clean the litter boxes at least once a day.

  • Ensure that you have at least one litter box for every cat you have in the house. This stops the litter boxes from overfilling with urine and feces.

  • Sprinkle some baking soda in the litter box before re-adding the litter. The baking soda helps absorb some of the foul odors.

  • Use a disinfectant when you are cleaning the litter boxes. Be sure to use it before you put the litter back in. This helps kill odor bacteria.

  • Invest in an air purifier. They help keep air circulating and remove a lot of bad cat odors.

  • Spray your furniture and carpets with deodorizing sprays. They have amazing effects on eliminating odors. They also leave your home smelling fresh and clean.

  • Use stain and odor removers if your cat has an accident on your carpet. They quickly eliminate stains as well as odor. This helps if you have a male cat that likes to spray.

Tips & Warnings

  • Try odor eliminating candles for an added hint of freshness.
