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.
