As someone who loves cats, I realize cat owners have two major problems across the board. Cleaning your litter box, and where to put it so it’s not an eyesore. We have a solution to both problems; and yes, we are open to receiving the Nobel Peace Prize for this.

Firstly, cleaning your litter box.

Ok;  now that we’ve solved how to easily clean your litter box with less stress, let’s talk about how to hide your litter box in plain sight.  There are many clever ways to hide your litter box, Pinterest has some fun examples that we at Clean Litter Club adore.

A Secret Place for Cats

When you live in a small space it is often necessary to keep your litter box in a common area. How can you do that, and not have your guests and families running for the exits? One idea is this cabinet below, you can pick one up at the Habitat Restore or IKEA and with paint and a few tools turn it into a cute cabinet that will hide your box and your SiftEase cleaner. 

There are other clever ways as well;  you can take lattice panels and create your own box to hide the kitty’s potty in; or you can take an old chest, or storage bench and create a nice seating arrangement and a hidy-hole for the litter box.  A side ways lattice laundry basket works well to have a door that opens just for kitty, Jon Snow’s mantle works perfectly making all your guests think it’s just another decorative shelf. They know nothing…even if they’re name isn’t Jon Snow.

Let us know how you hide your litter box in your house, or where you put it. Will you be trying one of these ideas? Keeping it where it is now? Or will you do like I will, toss a laundry basket on the side, and calling it a day?

How To Eliminate Litter Box Odor

I really despise litter box odor. I’ve tried just about everything to nix them. We have three cats along with three litter boxes, so when it’s bad, it’s bad.  The different models of self-cleaning and sifting litter boxes all have the same flaw in that the nasty litter waste goo gets stuck in the cleaning apparatus and at the bottom of the litter box.  Frustrated with new ideas, we switched back to a standard high sided litter box and scoop.

The recommendations by veterinarians and pet care associations for reducing litter box odors are: 

1. Clean the litter box at least once daily

2. Don’t use plastic litter liners (this can cause more odor where urine pools and the plastic can also snag on your cat’s claws)

3. Place the litter box in a room with lots of open air space.

It seems easy, right? WRONG!  We were scooping our litter boxes twice daily and we could still smell them! We were spending more time than we wanted on the litter boxes, constantly changing out the litter to reduce odors, with no foreseeable difference.

This really bothered me. I’m a problem solver by nature and I couldn’t believe there wasn’t another solution.  So, I invented one.

 I needed a way to quickly clean the litter box without all that tedious scooping. I wanted a way to reduce odors and spend less time cleaning the litter box.

SiftEase is one of our inventions which makes cleaning the litter box easier, with no scooping. Also makes for no litter box odor because you separate the clean and dirty litter from each other!

After a few weeks of prototyping, my invention “SiftEase” was born.  SiftEase is a separate device from the litter box. You pour the dirty litter box contents into SiftEase, and it does all the cleaning for you.  Waste is quickly and easily separated from clean litter, no scooping or sifting necessary on the part of the user.

Even better, I discovered after using SiftEase for a few days that the litter box odors had disappeared! I no longer smelled the litter box, even if I was in the same room.

I realized I had discovered the secret to eliminating litter box odor!  Remember that litter waste goo I mentioned earlier? Turns out it is THE STINKIEST GOO IN EXISTENCE!  So when you “clean” your litter box by using self-cleaning apparatus or a scoop, you are breaking up this goo and stirring it in with clean litter instead of completely removing it. Meaning: even after cleaning, the litter box still stinks.

Litter boxes and litter box scoops often get clumps of litter that stink up your box. With SiftEase we remove these clumps allowing for your litter box to be clean.

The reason SiftEase eliminates the odor is because waste is separated from the clean litter outside of the litter box. Keeping the litter you put back in your litter box clean and odorless.

 The stinky waste clumps stay in the sifting basket as the clean litter passes through to the bottom bin.  If there’s any goo left stuck to the bottom of the litter box, you can remove and dispose of it without mixing it into the clean litter.  When I invented SiftEase I had no idea it would help you remove litter box odor too!  I’m just glad it worked out that way. Order your SiftEase today to get rid of that litter box odor and to make your life easier!
